Farm Credit Canada CRSB Certified Sustainability Incentive: 2023 program deadline December 31

Innovative producers are key to growing a more sustainable future for agriculture. These changes require research, time and capital. By working with industry partners, Farm Credit Canada (FCC) has created an incentive program open to eligible FCC customers who meet those partners’ program requirements in sustainability. Together, we’re laying the groundwork for future generations to thrive in our industry.

In 2022, CRSB was the first organization to partner with FCC to recognize Canadian beef producers who are certified to the CRSB standards for sustainable beef production.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

FCC’s Sustainability Incentive Program rewards eligible FCC customers who are CRSB Certified. Incentive payments are calculated as a portion of eligible lending with FCC, to a maximum payment of $2,000 in one year. This is an annual program, so producers can re-apply annually throughout the life of the program.

Applications close for this program year December 31, and plan to re-open May 2024.

While the CRSB was the first, FCC has partnered with a number of organizations and sectors to support their producers through sustainability incentives, and now have programs for beef (CRSB Certified), crops (through Cargill’s RegenConnect™️ program), dairy (through the Dairy Farmers of Canada and Lactanet), potatoes (through McCain’s Regenerative Agriculture Framework), and Ducks Unlimited Canada (through their Marginal Areas Program).

Recognizing that producers may participate in more than one program for their operation, these programs are eligible to receive multiple incentive FCC payments, as the incentives can be stacked.
