AgriInvest

AgriInvest

AgriInvest helps producers manage small income declines. Each year, producers can make a deposit into an AgriInvest account, and receive a matching contribution from federal and provincial governments. 

AgriInvest accounts pay a higher interest rate than a regular savings account, thereby maximizing the amount that the producer receives. Producers have the flexibility to withdraw the funds at any time to cover small margin declines or for risk mitigation and other investments.

AgriInvest is part of the Growing Forward suite of federal-provincial-territorial Business Risk Management programs. Growing Forward is a commitment to Canada’s agriculture sector that’s focused on achieving results, reflects input from across the sector, and delivers programs that are simple, more effective and tailored to local needs.

Opening your AgriInvest account

Beginning with the 2009 program year, you may now make deposits into an AgriInvest account at Christian Credit Union. AgriInvest Deposit Notices for the 2009 program year will be mailed to producers starting in July 2010. The notices will include information on setting up a new AgriInvest account and an Account Initiation Form. To open a new AgriInvest account at your credit union, complete the form and return it to your local branch.

When you open your new AgriInvest account, Christian Credit Union will notify Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) that you’ve opened an account, and any existing AgriInvest funds will be transferred to your new account. Moving your accounts closer to where you live and work gives you the flexibility to keep track of your funds easily and to earn a competitive rate of interest on your deposits.
