How the program works

The 2021 Canada-British Columbia Flood Recovery Program for Food Security (the program) provides one-time funding for:

  • Uninsurable infrastructure repair and cleanup costs
  • Return to production expenses

Eligible farmers impacted by flooding are encouraged to apply. Damage assessment specialists will be available for individualized support.

The program is not meant to compensate for farm income losses and does not reduce the need to purchase commercial insurance for farm assets and infrastructure. Insurance and income protection offers a range of programs designed to help manage agricultural production risks.


Confirm your eligibility

The program is open to agricultural producers who were impacted by 2021 flooding and have their main farmstead in B.C.
