The ACAAFS program is fully allocated and is not currently accepting applications.


Residual funding from the Advancing Canadian Agriculture and Agri-Food Saskatchewan (ACAAFS) program is now available.  ACAAFS was a five-year, $240 million national Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) initiative designed to position Canada's agriculture and agri-food sector at the leading edge to capture new opportunities.


The program will support project objectives which help the agricultural sector adapt and remain competitive including:


  • Seizing opportunities: means to take advantage of a situation or circumstance in order to develop a new idea, product, niche, or market opportunity to the benefit of the sector
  • Responding to new and emerging issues: means to address issues that were not of concern previously or were not previously known.  Issues vary considerably throughout Canada because of soil conditions, climate and the sector’s level of development
  • Pathfinding and piloting solutions to new and ongoing issues: means to test ways of dealing with new issues or find new ways to deal with existing issues
