Supporting Canada’s supply-managed sectors
The Government of Canada is delivering on its commitment to provide full and fair compensation for supply-managed sectors to address the impacts of the Canada–European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).
On August 16, 2019, the federal government announced that $1.75 billion would be made available over 8 years to compensate supply-managed dairy farmers across Canada.
On November 28, 2020, the Government of Canada announced it had shortened this schedule to 4 years, with all payments set to be made by 2023. The Government of Canada has now made up to $813 million available to Canada's dairy producers under the first 2 years of this program.
Through the Dairy Direct Payment Program, dairy farmers will receive, on the basis of their milk quota, cash payments of up to $469 million in 2021–22 and $468 million in 2022–23. The owner of a farm with 80 dairy cows will be awarded compensation in the form of a direct payment of approximately $38,000 each year.
Together with the $250 million provided through the Dairy Farm Investment Program, this brings the total compensation package for dairy producers for the impacts of CETA and CPTPP to $2 billion.
The Government also announced $691 million in compensation for the impacts of CPTPP. Responding to sector demands, these 10-year programs will drive innovation and growth for Canada's 4,800 chicken, egg, broiler hatching egg and turkey farmers. On April 13, 2021, the Government of Canada announced program details of close to $630 million for the Poultry and Egg On-Farm Investment Program and over $61 million for the Market Development Program for Turkey and Chicken.
The Government of Canada remains committed to engaging the sector on full and fair compensation for the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement, and to providing compensation to processors of supply-managed products.
