Interested in cost-share opportunities for your farm but don’t know where to start? Look no further–the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) is pleased to offer a series of short, helpful video tutorials.

Since 2018, the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (the Partnership) has helped farmers complete projects in three key priority areas: economic development, environmental stewardship and protection and assurance.

This three-part video series, which is available in both English and French, explores different stages of the cost-share process, from navigating the interactive Program Guide and identifying the right cost-share opportunity for your farm to completing and submitting an online application with success.

Part one of the series will introduce you to the Online Program Guide at ontarioprogramguides.net, which contains important program requirements and eligibility information. This easy-to-follow tutorial demonstrates how to navigate the guide to find the best Partnership project category to meet your objectives. The Guided Search, for example, filters project categories based on business and commodity type, or Quick Search uses keywords to narrow down applicable project categories efficiently.
