Growing Forward 2 is a five-year agricultural policy framework agreement among federal-provincial-territorial governments.
It is the foundation for co-ordinated government action to help the agriculture and agrifood sectors become more profitable, competitive and innovative. Growing Forward 2 makes proactive investments in research and innovation, while maintaining important business risk management programs.
The Growing Forward 2 agricultural policy framework came into effect on April 1, 2013 and will continue until March 31, 2018. Investments by federal, provincial and territorial governments over this five-year period will total more than $3 billion - including a 50% increase in cost-shared investments for provincially targeted strategic initiatives.
