CAAP is no longer accepting applications. Please see the ACAAFS page for funding opportunities.


The project completion date of December 31, 2013 (at which point all project related expenses must have been incurred) has now passed and several important notices must be brought to your attention.


Please be advised that due to time constraints resulting from the termination of the CAAP program, CAAP Final Reports and Final Statement of Expenditures must be submitted in complete form, including all supplemental materials, no later than February 28th, 2014. Reports will be accepted in electronic or hard copy.


Project officers will be dealing with a large influx of final reports and will have little leeway for dealing with incomplete reports.  Please consult the Final Report and Reimbursement Guidelines to ensure all criteria are met prior to submission.  Failure to do so may result in forfeiting a portion of your total allocated funding. If you have any questions, please contact your project officer.


It cannot be stressed enough that all final reports, supporting documents, and proof of payment must be in order when submitting the Final Report and Final Statement of Expenditures. If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact your project officer well before the end of February.  Expenses lacking sufficient documentation will not be reimbursed as there will not be time to request additional supporting documentation. Please ensure your expense report is clearly outlined as there will not be time to request clarifications and explanations.


Please note that February 28, 2014 is the LAST day for accepting final reports. If your final report is complete and ready at any time prior to February 28, 2014, you are strongly encouraged to submit your report and required documentation early.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation in attending to these details.




The Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) is a five-year (2009-2014), $163 million national program with the objective of facilitating the agriculture, agri-food, and agri-based products sector's ability to seize opportunities, to respond to new and emerging issues, and to pathfind and pilot solutions to new and ongoing issues in order to help it adapt and remain competitive. CAAP is funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.


Launched as a successor to the Advancing Canadian Agriculture and Agri-Food (ACAAF) program, CAAP will continue to support industry-led initiatives at the national, regional and multi-regional levels.


CAAP intends on funding projects identified by the sector that align with priorities identified by industry and/or government at the national, regional, and multi-regional levels by focusing on:


  • Seizing opportunities
  • Responding to new and emerging issues
  • Pathfinding and piloting solutions to new and ongoing issues

On April 11, 2012, the Agriculture Council of Saskatchewan (ACS) Inc., was verbally notified by staff at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada that the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) will not be renewed or extended beyond March 2014.
