CAAP Sustainability Call for Proposals

On December 1st, the Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC) issued a Call for Proposals (CFP) to encourage projects that address agricultural sustainability in Ontario. 

Projects funded through this CFP must address the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) objective of facilitating the agriculture, agri-food, and agri-based products sector's ability to seize opportunities, to respond to new and emerging issues, and to pathfind and pilot solutions to new and ongoing issues in order to help it adapt and remain competitive. Funding for CAAP is provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

  • Economic sustainability - participants in the value chain have reasonable and equal opportunity to prosper
