4.3 - Eligibility Requirements

No Person will be considered eligible to participate in the Program unless that Person meets all the eligibility requirements under section 4.3.1 or section 4.3.2 of these Guidelines.

4.3.1 Deemed Participants

To participate under the Program as a Deemed Participant, a Person must:

  1. Be a Deemed Applicant;
  2. Agree to comply with the terms and conditions of the Program, as set out in the Order and these Guidelines;
  3. Be in compliance with all Requirements Of Law while participating in the Program.
4.3.2 Non-Deemed Participants

To participate under the Program as a Non-Deemed Participant, a Person must:

  1. Be a Non-Deemed Applicant;
  2. Agree to comply with the terms and conditions of the Program, as set out in the Order and these Guidelines; and
  3. Be in compliance with all Requirements Of Law at the time that the Applicant's application is submitted and remain in compliance with all Requirements Of Law while participating in the Program.

4.4 - Partnerships

Persons operating under a partnership will:

  1. Be deemed to be enrolled under the Program separately if they are Deemed Applicants, or
  2. Enroll separately under the Program if they are Non-Deemed Applicants, and will be treated in the following manner:
    1. Each partner must be eligible for the Program based on that partner's merits; and
    2. Each partner's ANS will be calculated based on that partner's percentage share in the partnership for the Program Year in which a Program Payment relates.

4.5 - Eligible Commodities

A Participant's ANS will only be calculated based on Eligible Commodities. Eligible Commodities are those commodities set out under Appendix 1 to these Guidelines.

4.6 - Payments

All Program Payments made under the Program will be calculated based on what is set out under this section 4.6 of these Guidelines.

4.6.1 Methods of Accounting

If a Participant is also participating in AgriStability or the OSDRMP, the method of accounting the Participant uses in AgriStability or the OSDRMP must be followed under the Program. If a Participant is not participating in either AgriStability or the OSDRMP, the method of accounting the Participant uses must be the same as the Participant uses on their Tax Data as filed with the CRA or Agricorp.

4.6.2 Allowable Net Sales

ANS are the net total of a Participant's gross sales of Eligible Commodities, less the purchase costs of those Eligible Commodities.

Example:

Gross sales of Eligible Commodities
$55,000.00
less Purchases of Eligible Commodities
- $5,000.00
Equals ANS
$50,000.00

Claims for payments under AgriInsurance for an Eligible Commodity production will be considered an eligible income for the purposes of calculating a Participant's ANS.

4.6.3 Processing and/or Resale of Like Products

The income and expense associated with the purchase and resale of an Eligible Commodity without any further processing are non-allowable. An example is a Person who purchases produce and simply resells the produce without any processing.

Processing is defined as a changing of state. For example: strawberries to jam.

The income and expense associated with the processing of purchased commodities not produced on the Participant's operation are allowable if:

  • The Participant carries on a bona fide farming operation;
  • Activities are related to the Participant's other farming activities;
  • Activities are undertaken on a small scale; and
  • Income from these activities is incidental to the Participant's other farming income.

Agricorp will consider the above in determining whether processing income and expense should be considered allowable. This is consistent with AgriStability rules.

4.6.4 Calculation of Program Payment

A. Calculation of Program Payments for Deemed Participants

A Deemed Participant's 2018 Program Year Program Payment will be calculated by using that Participant's 2016 ANS and the tiers set out under section 4.6.4C and prorated under section 4.6.4D of these Guidelines.

A Deemed Participant's 2019 Program Year Program Payment will be calculated by using that Participant's 2017 ANS and the tiers set out under section 4.6.4C and prorated under section 4.6.4D of these Guidelines.

B. Calculation of Program Payments for Non-Deemed Participants

A Non-Deemed Participant's 2018 Program Year Program Payment will be calculated by using that Non-Deemed Participant's 2017 ANS, which will be based on that Non-Deemed Participant's 2017 Tax Data and sections 4.6.1 to 4.6.3, as well as sections 4.6.4C and 4.6.4D of these Guidelines.

A Non-Deemed Participant's 2019 Program Year Program Payment will be calculated by using that Non-Deemed Participant's 2018 ANS, which will be based on that Non-Deemed Participant's 2018 Tax Data and sections 4.6.1 to 4.6.3, as well as section 4.6.4C and 4.6.4D of these Guidelines.

If a producer participated in the 2018 Program Year as a Non-Deemed Participant, that producer will also be treated as a Non-Deemed Participant in the 2019 Program Year as well.

C. Initial Calculation

Agricorp will conduct an initial calculation of a Participant's Program Payment based on the size of the Participant's farming operation, with smaller operations receiving relatively larger payments. The initial calculation of a Participant's Program Payment will be the sum of a Participant's ANS under each tier multiplied by the associated rate.

The tier and associated rate that will be used for the initial calculation of a Participant's Program Payment for both the 2018 and 2019 Program Years will be as follows:

  • Two and one half percent (2.5%) of ANS up to one million dollars ($1,000,000.00).
  • Two percent (2%) of ANS between one million dollars and one cent ($1,000,000.01) to two million five hundred thousand dollars ($2,500,000.00).
  • One and one half percent (1.5%) of ANS between two million five hundred thousand dollars and one cent ($2,500,000.01) to five million dollars ($5,000,000.00).
  • One percent (1.0%) for ANS between five million dollars and one cent ($5,000,000.01) and ten million dollars ($10,000,000.00).

Any remaining ANS greater than ten million dollars ($10,000,000.00) is not eligible for a Program Payment calculation.

D. Proration Calculation

Agricorp will provide the Ministry with the total aggregate of all initial calculations under section 4.6.4C of these Guidelines. The Ministry will then provide Agricorp with the proration number so that the aggregate of all Program Payments do not exceed the funding available for each Program Year. Agricorp will then apply the proration number against a Participant's initial calculation to arrive that the Participant's Program Payment for the Program Year.

4.6.5 Making Payments

Agricorp will make Program Payments to Participants in accordance with the following:

  1. No Program Payments will be made before April 1, 2018;
  2. No Program Payment will be made to a Participant without that Participant also being provided an accompanying Notice that sets out:
    1. The ANS for the Participant in which a Program Payment is being made;
    2. The terms and conditions under which the Participant will be deemed to agree with if the Participant accepts a Program Payment;
    3. A requirement the Participant provides an attestation to the Program Administrator or Service Provider, as the case may be, the Participant:
      1. Agrees to comply with the terms and conditions set out in the Notice, and
      2. Is in compliance with the terms and conditions set out in the Notice;
      3. is an ongoing farming business, intending to continue business beyond the calendar year in which they are receiving a Program Payment.
    4. An option for the Participant to refuse to participate in the Program; and
    5. The rights of a Participant to request a review of:
      1. Their eligibility under the Program, and

4.7 - Payment linkages

Payments made under the Program will not be subject to revisions due to amendments to a Participant's SDRM calculated benefit or their Tax Data, with the exception of the discovery by the Service Provider of significant or impactful information, or the provision of what was false or misleading data.
