What is Cross Compliance?

Your province or territory may require you to comply with certain conditions to be eligible for government contributions.

Provinces may choose to implement cross compliance initiatives related to:

  • traceability or other food safety improvements
  • environmental programs or practices
  • business development activities
  • innovation programs

If your province implements a cross compliance initiative, provincial officials are responsible for notifying you of the initiative and verifying if you have met the condition. Your province will then inform the AgriInvest administration if you have met the condition.  If you have not met the condition set out by your province, you will not be eligible to receive government contributions.

If you feel that the cross compliance conditions were not properly applied to your AgriInvest form, you can submit an appeal directly to your province. Your province is responsible for addressing any disputes regarding the cross compliance condition.

For detailed program information, see the AgriInvest Program Guidelines.
