Recognizing that farmers in western Canada and northwestern Ontario are facing devastating drought conditions, ALP and the National Sheep Network (NSN) welcomed the news today from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada that they are investing $100 million to support farmers. This funding will match provincial AgriRecovery submissions and so we encourage you to be working with your provincial organizations to ensure access to support.
We continue to advocate to be sure the needs and concerns of our members are heard. We are also working to ensure sheep farmers are included and covered by assistance programs.
And, if you – or someone you know – need support to cope with this crisis, please visit Do More Ag for a list of resources near you.
