Recovery Resources

Flood Recovery Program

If your farm was impacted by the flooding in November 2021, you are urged to apply for the 2021 Flood Recovery Program for Food Security as soon as possible to receive one-time funding for Uninsurable infrastructure repair/ cleanup costs AND Return to production expenses.   Learn more here.

AgriStability provides funding to farmers who have experienced income declines due to crop or livestock losses or market conditions.   B.C. farmers that are not currently enrolled for the 2021 program year can now apply to enroll.  The categories in which farmers may potentially receive support under Agri-Recovery include flood clean up, critical infrastructure and system repair, feed assistance, and veterinary costs. For more information click here,  call 1-877-343-2767  or email AgriStability@gov.bc.ca

Its very important that growers keep track of all costs related to clean up and recovery.   For a Farm Costs and Labour Tracking sheet template click here.
