Shaping the direction of the CAP successor

If you have thoughts on the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP), now’s your chance to share them, and help shape the direction of the next federal-provincial-territorial agreement.

This week, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) launched the consultation process for CAP’s successor — the Next Agricultural Policy Framework (NPF).

Moving from CAP to NPF

CAP is a five-year, $3 billion agreement that provides financial support for ag programs and services, including both federal programs, and programs that are cost-shared between federal and provincial governments.

CAP provides funding for business risk management programs AgriInvest, AgriRecovery and AgriStability.

Like CAP, NPF is a five-year (2023-2028) investment into Canada’s agriculture and agri-food sector. Initial consultations are underway, on current and potential challenges and opportunities facing agriculture, and prospective priorities and vision for the next framework.

What to consider in providing feedback

If you’re interested in sharing your experiences and ideas, AAFC suggests thinking about:

  • What new elements need to be considered for the Next Policy Framework?
  • What challenges and opportunities, both current and emerging, do you see for the sector?
  • What is working well with the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP)?
  • Where can improvements be found?

How to provide input

To share your thoughts, email: aafc.npf-pcs.aac@canada.ca, or send your letter to:

Next Policy Framework
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
1341 Baseline Road, Tower 7
Floor 5, Room 300
Ottawa ON
K1A 0C5

You can also join the discussion on social media, by tagging @AAFC_Canada, and using the hashtag #AgNPF. AAFC is also on Facebook.

What happens next?

The feedback provided to AAFC will help to establish the vision and priorities for NPF, and inform policies, activities and programs developed with provincial and territorial governments.

Ministers of Agriculture will meet September 2021 to reflect on the consultations received at that point, and begin the next steps.

Consultations for NPF will continue until the spring of 2022, with CAP set to expire March 31, 2023.

To keep an eye on the process, visit the Next Agricultural Policy Framework throughout 2021 and 2022.
