Recently, the new Canadian Agricultural Strategic Priorities Program (CASPP) was announced, replacing the Canadian Agricultural Adaption Program. This new program is an investment of $50.3 million spread over 5 years, in an effort to aid the agricultural sector and help it remain competitive. This aid will help address emerging issues and capitalize on opportunities, helping the industry to adapt in years to come.
CASPP’s main focuses will be on adoption of new technology, environmental sustainability, strategic development, and emerging issues. These topics allow applicants to receive funding on innovative projects such as artificial intelligence, bio-crops, environmentally sustainable techniques, and more.
The program is now accepting applicants online who are looking to launch these projects on a national scale or deal with cross-sectoral issues.
