The AgriMarketing Program helps farmers and food processors compete in markets at home and abroad. It supports the agriculture industry by creating and maintaining access to markets and taking advantage of market opportunities.

Available Funding

$341 million is available in the form of government projects and contribution funding during five years (2013-2018).

Program Delivery

The department helps the agriculture industry expand markets and seize opportunities through government projects and contribution funding. We support projects under the following four streams:

  • Market development stream: Builds and promotes Canada's ability to expand markets at home and abroad. Promotional activities help position and differentiate Canadian products and producers, and ensure they meet market requirements. The Stream offers contribution funding to:
  • Assurance systems stream: Helps enhance the competitiveness of the agriculture industry by meeting buyer and market demands for assurance. The stream supports developing national assurance systems or standards for food safety, animal and plant health, market attribute/quality and traceability.
  • Breaking down trade barriers
  • Building market success
