New AgriRecovery Initiative for Grape Growers – Applications Now Open
The governments of Canada and Ontario have introduced a new AgriRecovery initiative that will provide up to $5 million for eligible grape growers.
Starting in July 2023, eligible Ontario grape growers can apply for financial support under the Canada-Ontario Grapevine Winter Injury Initiative (2021-2022) to help recover from significant vine damage and loss. The initiative (delivered by Agricorp) will provide funding for up to 70% of the costs of replacing or renewing grapevines lost or damaged during the defined period.
The application can be viewed here. Note that completed application forms must be submitted to the Administrator no later than 11:59PM ET on Monday, August 21, 2023.
