On Oct. 15, 2018, the Alberta government launched the Farm Health and Safety Producer Grant, a cost-sharing initiative that matches dollars for approved equipment upgrades and specific projects designed to make employees safer.
Up to $6 million is available through the grant process to help qualified farmers until Mar. 2, 2021. Expenses incurred since Jan. 1, 2018, and that meet the submission criteria, are covered by the program. The annual maximum is $5,000 per applicant to a limit of $10,000 over the life of the program.
