AgriInvest: Deposit and Earn to Offset Income Declines

With so many factors affecting the potential profitability of farms, long-term budgeting and financial planning can feel especially difficult.

What if you had a way to protect against minor reductions in income? And, what if all you had to do was open a savings account to get that protection?

AgriInvest Canada accounts give Canadian farmers the opportunity to offset small declines in income with matching contributions. Simply deposit up to 100% of your allowable net sales into your account. That’s all you have to do to get a matching government contribution. 

In return, the federal government will provide you with an amount equivalent to 1% of your allowable net sales. That’s funding you can count on to help support your business.


Why Should I Consider the AgriInvest Program?

Every business needs a business savings account. It’s the easiest way to keep your company’s funds safe and accessible. Another key benefit: savings accounts earn interest. You can put your money to work, by doing nothing besides making deposits, with a guaranteed interest rate.


What if your business savings account could give you more options to earn? That’s the exact benefit an AgriInvest account provides. Deposit a maximum of 100% of allowable net sales and  receive a matching government contribution of up to 1% of that figure in return.

The program is based on a yearly cycle. That means your farm can earn that 1% allowable net sales contribution each year. It’s money in your pocket, just for completing the AgriInvest application and maintaining your account.


How is the 1% Contribution Calculated for AgriInvest Accounts?

The matching contribution is based on your allowable net sales. That figure can be determined with just a few calculations. Add up your gross sales of allowable commodities and purchases of allowable commodities, then subtract purchases from gross sales. 

The final step is to find 1% of that net allowable sales figure. You can simply divide the figure by 100%. 

The maximum allowable net sales figure matched in the AgriInvest program is $1 million. That would yield a contribution of $10,000 — a sizeable amount that can help offset an income decline.

On the other side of this range, the minimum eligible deposit for matching is $250.
