Poultry farmers allowed late participation in AgriStability

Feb 03, 2023

Alberta Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation Nate Horner has issued a statement on late participation in AgriStability for the 2022 year for poultry producers not currently signed up.

In response to the avian influenza outbreak in 2022, the Governments of Canada and Alberta have agreed to allow late participation and producers can reach out to Agriculture Financial Services Corporation to enroll by Feb. 28.

“Alberta’s producers have faced significant impacts, substantial losses, and a great deal of stress during the time,” says Horner in a news release.

He says in recognition of the potential for more infections as we move into spring, he will continue to work with the industry to identify any available tools and supports to mitigate avian influenza’s impacts.
