Funding applications open today

Starting today, applications will be accepted under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership to support projects that will help the food and beverage manufacturing industry improve labour and production efficiency and reducing waste. 

Funding is available to agri-food businesses that are ready to implement advanced manufacturing technology such as automating production or reducing waste.

“This funding to improve productivity and efficiency is an important step to ensuring food and beverage processors have the supports they need to stay competitive as they navigate the pandemic and grow for the future,” said Lisa Thompson, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. 

The federal government pays more than half of the funding.
