Who can participate?
Individuals, co-operatives and corporations are eligible if they have reported farming income (or loss) to the Canada Revenue Agency for tax purposes. Status Indians farming on reserves in Canada are also eligible for AgriInvest. Eligible commodities include most primary agricultural commodities except those covered under supply management (dairy, poultry and eggs).
Setting up an AgriInvest Account
You will need to complete an original, signed, Agriculture and AgriFood Canada (AAFC)-issued, AgriInvest Account Initiation Form. Once we receive that form from you, we will notify Agriculture and AgriFood Canada (AAFC) that you've opened an account and any existing AgriInvest funds will be transferred to your new account.
Making Deposits & Withdrawals
You will receive a Deposit Notice outlining your deposit amount for the year. You can deposit any amount up to your maximum matching deposit by the deadline indicated on your notice. After your deposit is made, your account will be credited with the matching government contribution. You have the flexibility to withdraw from your account at any time.
Please note: only 1 deposit per program year can be made.
