Step 1. What this program offers
AgriInvest is one of the Business Risk Management programs under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) five-year, $3 billion investment by federal, provincial and territorial governments to strengthen the agriculture and agri-food sector.
AgriInvest is a self-managed producer-government savings account designed to help you manage small income declines and make investments to manage risk and improve market income.
Each year, you can deposit up to 100% of your Allowable Net Sales to your AgriInvest account and receive a matching government contribution on 1% of your Allowable Net Sales. For more information, visit How is my AgriInvest Deposit Calculated?
Your AgriInvest account grows as you make deposits, receive matching government contributions and earn interest. You can withdraw funds from your AgriInvest account any time. Funds are withdrawn from your account in the following order:
- Fund 2 – government contributions and interest (included in income for tax purposes)
- Fund 1 – your deposits (not taxable)
For more information on participating, visit Who is eligible? and How to apply.

Note: AgriInvest is delivered by the federal government in all provinces except Quebec.
In Quebec, AgriInvest is delivered provincially by La Financière agricole.
