Growing Forward 2: 2013-2018

The Prince Edward Island Department of Agriculture and Forestry and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada have entered into a new five-year agreement for agriculture called Growing Forward 2. Growing Forward represents a commitment from Canada's Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers of Agriculture for a new policy framework that will support a more profitable and competitive sector. This new framework is built on three priority outcomes:

  • Innovation
  • Competitiveness and Market Development
  • Adaptability and Industry Capacity


Backgrounders for Growing Forward 2:



Agriculture Livestock Enhancement Program

Agriculture Research and Innovation

Assurance Systems Program

Business Development

Environmental Responsibility

Future Farmer Program

Organic Industry Development Program

Product and Market Development Program

Growing Forward has been developed with the help of producers, processors and other industry stakeholders. We will continue to consult with the P.E.I. agriculture sector to ensure that the programming available under Growing Forward supports a more profitable and competitive industry for Island farmers.
