provides financial assistance to producers whose livestock, poultry
or honey bees have been damaged or killed by wildlife. The OWDCP

and territorial initiative.
of Program Updates effective September 4, 2018 for OWDCP

farmers. Two changes to the program, which apply to all claims
assessed from September 4, 2018 onwards, are now in effect:
- The Farm Business Registration Number (FBRN) requirement
has been updated to allow applicants to apply for the program
compensation if they have a valid FBRN number in the current
or the previous calendar year, or have a valid FBRN exemption.
- The standardized
pricing methodology has been updated to provide separate
pricing for steers and heifers.
- Over the fall, Ontario will seek additional input and advice
from the sector on additional program updates.
