The final deadline to enrol for the 2020 AgriStability
program year is July 3, 2020.
AgriStability protects agricultural producers against declines in their net farming income
due to market conditions, production loss and/or increased costs of production.
• Payments are made if a producer’s current year margin (eligible income minus
eligible expenses) falls more than 30 percent below their historical margin.
Additional income protection has been made available through the recently
established B.C. AgriStability Enhancement Program.
o B.C. has removed the Reference Margin Limit and increased the
compensation rate from 70 percent to 80 percent, which means that every payment in 2019 and 2020 from AgriStability will be increased by a
minimum of 14.3 percent.
• Enrolment fees can be paid without a penalty until July 3, 2020 or within 30 days of the
date on your 2020 Enrolment Notice, whichever is later.
• Producers who miss the July 3, 2020 deadline will not be eligible for any 2020 AgriStability benefits.
The ministry has an excellent team of dedicated professionals who help B.C. farmers
manage their business risks. They are there to help you with questions about protecting
your income, you can contact them directly by phone 1-877-343-2767; or email: AgriStability@gov.bc.ca
