Tuesday, April 30, 2019 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This event does not repeat

Federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister, Marie-Claude Bibeau, and Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister, David Marit, are reminding Saskatchewan producers that the deadline to enroll in the AgriStability Program is April 30, 2019.

AgriStability is a low-cost risk management program offering financial assistance to producers who experience large margin declines due to production loss, adverse market conditions or increased costs.

“AgriStability is an essential tool to help farmers manage risks and financial losses due to poor yields, low commodity prices, or rising input costs,” said Bibeau. “The federal government will continue to work closely with the Saskatchewan government to provide farmers with the tools and programs they need to help them manage significant risks that are beyond their capacity to manage.”

In Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation has administered the AgriStability Program since the 2009 program year. In the last three program years, AgriStability paid benefits of more than $200 million to Saskatchewan producers. In the 2016 program year, AgriStability benefits totalling more than $73.64 million were paid to 1,491 Saskatchewan producers.

Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation has 21 customer service offices across the province where producers can discuss their risk management plans with a program advisor. Producers may also call the AgriStability call centre at 1-866-270-8450, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Seed Talk Series: Seed Regulatory Modernization

Thursday, January 28, 2021 9:00 am - 11:00 am
This event does not repeat

Thursday, January 28, 2021 - 9:00 AM CST
Location: Virtually on Zoom

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) plans to modernize the Seeds Regulations as they apply to seeds imported, conditioned, stored, tested, labelled, exported and sold in Canada. It is anticipated that the amendments would reduce overlap and redundancy, increase responsiveness to industry changes, address gaps, weaknesses and inconsistencies, and provide clarity and flexibility to affected regulated parties.

The current Seeds Regulations have been in place since 1905, and while there have been minor changes over the decades, a focused, industry wide review overseen by CFIA is long overdue. Join us on January 28 at 9:00 AM CST for a conversation with our guests as CFIA gets ready to launch their stakeholder survey.
  • Wendy Jahn (National Manager, Seed Section CFIA, Co-Chair Seed Regulatory Modernization Working Group)
  • Roy Van Wyk (CSI, Industry Co-Chair Seed Regulatory Modernization Working Group) and
  • Mike Scheffel (CSGA Managing Director, Policy and Standards)
