Funding available for green projects

Do you need help making environmental improvements to your farm? Canada’s Agricultural Youth Green Jobs Initiative will provide $1.9 million to help farmers, non-profits, and other organizations hire post-secondary graduates who are 30 years or younger and want to work in agriculture.

Projects must offer an environmental benefit, be completed by March 2017, and the jobs must last at least four months. Green Farms will pay up to 50 per cent of hiring costs (up to $10,000 per worker).

For more information on eligibility or to apply, visit canada.ca/agriculture or call 1-866-452-5558.
