Crop Loss & Damage Due to Wildlife
Agriculture producers can get compensation due to wildlife damage to some harvested and unharvested crops by enrolling in the Agriculture Wildlife Program.
Only losses caused by the following wildlife, which are not held in captivity will be considered:
- Mountain sheep
Compensation may be restricted to agriculture producers who follow best management practices in crop loss prevention. Agriculture producers must provide proof of:
- BC Assessment Farm Status
- Private land ownership and/or lease confirmation along with a tax reporting number for any potential payments
Although purchasing crop insurance is encouraged, it is not a requirement for enrollment in the Agriculture Wildlife Program. If you purchase crop insurance you will automatically be enrolled.
