Governments of Canada and Nova Scotia invest in farm sustainability and growth
"Investments like these are win-win for our agricultural producers and our environment because they increase production of locally-sourced vegetables by using modern infrastructure. Our Government will continue collaborating with our provincial partners to help the sustainable development of agricultural businesses like these who make important contributions to our communities by providing jobs and supplying high-quality food."
- The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
"Nova Scotia’s Agriculture Business Advancer Program helps agri-businesses innovate and expand, enhancing rural economic development and increasing food security in our province. With our federal government partners, we congratulate the two Nova Scotian greenhouse operations who are the Advancer Program’s 2020 funding recipients."
- Keith Colwell, Nova Scotia Minister of Agriculture
"This funding means we can now increase our production even through the winter months. Our business is growing, in more ways than one, thanks to this important investment from the two levels of government. I think it’s good for us, our suppliers, our customers, and for the economy generally. Everybody wins."
- Luke den Haan, den Haan Greenhouses, Lawrencetown, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia

The Agriculture Business Advancer program is funded through CAP and helps farms acquire new technologies, processes or specialized equipment to grow their business.
