The next application intake for cost-share funding under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) will be November 15 to December 6, 2021. This is good timing if you are looking to implement improvements in your greenhouse for the 2022 season.

Several project areas are available to growers.
The following categories may be of specific interest to greenhouse floriculture growers:
Additional project categories to evaluate marketing plans for domestic or exported products and comprehensive business and financial plans for future planning are also available.

Remember that cost-share funding under the Partnership is merit-based and project funding amounts are individually established based on project categories. In some cases, increased cost-share is available for projects showing an advanced innovation level.
