2021 Late Participation Option for AgriStability

In response to 2021's extreme weather events a joint agreement between Canada and British Columbia has enabled a Late Participation Option for the AgriStability 2021 program year. However, AgriStability payments to Late Participants will be reduced by 20%.

Application process:

Initially, all that is required is to submit a completed 2021 Late Participant Initial Declaration and Authorization Form and pay a $300 enrolment deposit by December 31, 2022.

  • AgriStability Administration will contact you within 30 days of receiving your completed forms to inform you of the next steps in the process and to request any additional information needed.
  • The Canadian Agricultural Partnership AgriStability Program Guidelines provide more information on the AgriStability program requirements and fees.

Late Participants can apply for an interim payment of up to a 75% advance of the estimated final benefit; interim applications are processed quickly.
