Creating jobs by investing in Alberta agriculture
11 Jun 2021
Alberta’s government streamlined its Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) grant process to make it easier for producers and food manufacturers to access funds.
Changes include a simplified grant application process that will allow applicants to receive their money faster, enabling companies to more easily create jobs and inject more money into the province’s economy. Funding for the five-year $406-million partnership remains unchanged.
This year, Alberta’s CAP funding will focus on investment in agriculture and food processing. Through these changes, the program will encourage innovation and technological advancement on farms and throughout the entire food supply chain.
