Farmland values across Canada continued to increase despite rising interest rates during the first half of 2022, a mid-year review by Farm Credit Canada (FCC) said.

“Strong farm cash receipts, buoyed by robust commodity prices, have managed to quell some of the profitability challenges from higher interest rates and farm input costs,” J.P. Gervais, FCC’s chief economist, said in the release. “Producers are still making strategic investments in their operations and buying farmland, which is in short supply and high demand.”

The highest average farmland value increases were reported in Ontario (15.6 per cent), Prince Edward Island (14.8 per cent) and Quebec (10.3 per cent), followed by Saskatchewan (8.4 per cent), which was closest to the national average increase of 8.1 per cent. More modest increases were reported in the rest of the provinces.
