The Partnership will enable the agriculture industry to grow, innovate and prosper.

The Canadian Agricultural Partnership will provide:

  • $1 billion in federal-only initiatives; and

Premises Identification Program

As of April 1, 2019, producers are required to participate in the Premises Identification Program to be eligible for funding through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

Premises identification is an essential part of a traceability system. It links animals and food products to geographic locations for better management of animal health and food safety emergencies. Newfoundland and Labrador’s premises identification system maps out parcels of land where animals and food products are grown, kept, assembled or disposed of. In a crisis, such as a disease outbreak or natural emergency, the Premises Identification Program system can quickly identify and notify individuals who may be affected.
