Funding Opportunities for the Agriculture and Agri-Food Sector in BC

Hello all,

I just wanted to take a moment to connect with you about some funding opportunities that IAF is offering this fall. 2020 has been an unprecedented year so far, and the new season will likely yield additional challenges for BC farmers and food processors but IAF continues to efficiently deliver government funded programs to the sector!

The following is an overview of active funding opportunities that IAF is administering and upcoming program launches and resources, with more information available in the coming weeks. It is more important than ever to encourage innovation, adaptation and collaboration within our industry – we hope you can help us share the news!

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me (Abbie Morris) at amorris@iafbc.ca / 250-213-8325
