Important Information about AgriInvest Deposit Confirmation Notices
Starting November 2017, we will no longer mail AgriInvest Deposit Confirmation Notices to AgriInvest participants who have made their full matchable deposit and received full government contributions. However, participants can still view their Deposit Confirmation Notice online with My AAFC Account.
Participants can also confirm the status of their AgriInvest deposit by:
- Checking their AgriInvest account statement from their bank or credit union
- Contacting us toll-free at 1-866-367-8506
This move is part of our commitment to deliver program information to participants in an efficient and environmentally friendly way, while reducing printing and mailing costs.
AgriInvest helps you manage small income declines, and provides support for investments to mitigate risks or improve market income. Your AgriInvest account builds as you make annual deposits based on a percentage of your Allowable Net Sales and receive matching contributions from federal, provincial, and territorial governments.
Starting with the 2013 program year, you can deposit up to 100% of your Allowable Net Sales annually, with the first 1% matched by governments. The limit on matching government contributions is $15,000 per year.
Deposits are made to your AgriInvest account held at a participating financial institution. Simply bring your Deposit Notice to your financial institution, and deposit any amount up to 100% of your Allowable Net Sales as shown on your notice. You have 90 days from the issue date on the Deposit Notice to make a deposit to your account. Your financial institution will notify Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada once you have made a deposit and the matching government contributions will be credited to your account. You have the flexibility to withdraw funds at any time throughout the year.
AgriInvest is cost shared on a 60/40 basis between the federal, provincial and territorial governments.
