To aid livestock producers who were affected by the 2023 drought, the Canada-Alberta Drought Livestock Assistance initiative has added 23 more eligible regions and extended the application deadline, providing a lifeline to individuals dealing with the aftermath of severe weather events. Funding is provided through the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership (Sustainable CAP).

Key Highlights of the AgriRecovery Initiative

Livestock producers in eligible regions who altered their grazing practices due to drought conditions for more than 21 days can apply for financial support to cover losses incurred to manage and maintain female breeding animals. A minimum of 15 animals per type of livestock are required to qualify.

The initiative opened on January 29, 2024 and applicants may receive payments of up to $150 per head. The application deadline is February 22, 2024, and extraordinary costs can be incurred until March 31, 2024. This expansion also gives producers who were already eligible another opportunity to apply.
