Growing Forward 2
"Farm Business Development Initiative"

Saskatchewan Agriculture has announced new funding for farmers for the development of business plans and to enhance business skills in the following areas: Business Strategy, Marketing Production Economics, Human Resources, Financial Management, Environment, Succession Planning and Business Structure.

This program is somewhat similar to the previous one offered, however the funding arrangements have changed. The government will now reimburse farmers 50% for up to $5,000 of consulting with varying funding caps based on the area of consulting. The funding caps regarding the areas that Wheatland Accounting can assist in are as follows: Strategic Planning and Succession.

Planning $5,000, Financial Management and Business Structure $2,000. This funding is available for each member of the family that meets the requirements of the program. Please contact us if you have any questions.
