Ag Action Manitoba Program for Industry Organizations

The Ag Action Manitoba program helps industry organizations develop and implement strategic planning and business management activities for long-term growth.

Industry organizations include non-profit organizations that are actively engaged in representing farmers, agri-processors, or agri-business members interests, and that are working to further the competitiveness of Manitoba’s agriculture sector.

If you are an association, commission, non-profit organization, or board or you represent Indigenous government and communities, you may be eligible to apply to the following Ag Action Manitoba program activities:

  • Special COVID-19 Response Initiative: will assist the agriculture industry in Manitoba to implement COVID-19 risk mitigation strategies to reduce the impact the pandemic is having on the agriculture supply chain. This rebate program includes purchases of personal protective equipment, testing equipment and sanitation supplies; development of business continuity, training and resources; and production process adaptations and equipment rentals. 
  • Organizational Development:  includes strategic planning, business planning, communications planning, succession planning, board governance and leadership development activities.
  • Industry Development: includes support for primary agriculture development, agri-processing, marketing strategies, tools, partnerships, and healthy people, animals, plants and landscapes.
  • Resource Development: includes developing materials to provide accurate information about farm operations and business management practices, including manuals, transition guides and videos.
  • Training: supports group learning and knowledge transfer where expertise, learning and skills are shared through annual conferences, meetings, workshops, group training and events.
