Poultry and Egg On-Farm Investment Program

When the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) was signed on March 8, 2018, Chicken Farmers of Canada worked to ensure the delivery of the full and fair support that was promised by government. Finally, in November 2020, the government announced that it would set up investment programs for the Canadian poultry and egg sectors.
The Poultry and Egg On-Farm Investment Program (PEFIP) provides $347.3 million to chicken farmers until March 2030, to offset eligible investments made in their operations. Farmers can access funding to increase efficiency or productivity, improve on-farm food safety and biosecurity, improve environmental sustainability, and/or respond to consumer preferences.
It is important for all BC chicken growers to register for this program as soon as possible, even if you may not plan to use the funds right away.   When you register, you will be provided with additional information, including how much investment funding you will be entitled to use.
