Where to find agricultural support in one place

by | Feb 9, 2023 | Featured Finance, Health and Wellness

Some people are born into farming, and some discover it as a passion. While it can be incredibly satisfying, it’s certainly not easy to manage the day in and day out stressors of agricultural life – from animal or crop care, land management, regular maintenance, and financial planning and management.

However, it’s becoming easier to find services and tools to help lighten the load. The AgPal tool from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has been revamped as an easy to use, one-stop-shop website for information and resources on just about anything and everything agriculture-related.

You can get immediate information on everything from financing options, funding and grants, sustainability practices and market intelligence, as well as resources for young or new farmers and relevant support for mental health, among other interesting areas.

The information is from various sources including federal, provincial and territorial governments as well as research from universities and colleges.

The site is kept up to date with relevant, timely content – especially helpful when it comes to financial assistance. For ease of use, you can also search with filters such as region, client type, commodity, topic, service or category.

Find more information on the updated site at agpal.ca.
