Ag Action Manitoba for Agri-Processors

The Ag Action Manitoba program supports the growth and sustainability of the agri-processing sector.

Eligible agri-processors, including agri-food processors, agri-product processors, and abattoirs 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.
  • Capital Assets and Equipment: will assist with capital investment for modernization activities that enhance efficiency, productivity and environmental sustainability. This can include equipment purchases that support the transformation of raw inputs into value-added goods that bring new technologies or products into the production process; build more value for the processes by capturing value from waste products; and address the treatment and purification of wastewater. 
  • Market Development: supports market research projects, market access training, scale up production, product development, labelling and packaging, sensory and shelf life studies, and participation in tradeshows.
  • Research and Innovation: supports basic and applied research, capacity building, and knowledge transfer activities to advance growth and sustainability of the agriculture industry.
