2019 program year files are being processed
SCIC is now accepting final AgriStability program forms for the 2019 Program Year. Farming and ranching operations with a non-calendar year end can complete and submit their final program forms at any time.
SCIC processes files based on the order they are received. Submitting program forms well in advance of the September deadline will help files be processed more quickly.
AgriStability under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership
AgriStability is a national program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) agreement on agriculture policy. This five-year federal-provincial-territorial funding agreement governs business risk management (BRM) programs such as Crop Insurance, AgriStability, Western Livestock Price Insurance and AgriInvest.
Changes to BRM programs, including AgriStability, took effect for the 2018 program year. The major change to AgriStability involves the Reference Margin Limit (RML). Producers are now guaranteed that the RML used in their program calculations will never be less than 70 per cent of their conventional reference margin. This change will help producers with a low cost expense structure which would have resulted in a low reference margin.
