Risk Management

Growing Forward 2: 2013-2018

Federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) Ministers of Agriculture have reached agreement on the five-year Growing Forward 2 policy framework. Governments will continue to deliver a complete and effective suite of business risk management (BRM) programs. New program parameters are in place as of April 1, 2013.

Business Risk Management (BRM) programs are in place to help farmers in managing risks from income declines resulting from drought, flooding, low prices, and increased input costs. The programs work together by providing protection for different types of losses, as well as cash flow options.
