Agri-Futures Nova Scotia has been successfully delivering programs on behalf of the Government of Canada for more than 15 years. Throughout this time, Agri-Futures have become a leader in conceptualizing, developing, applying for, and managing new projects and initiatives on behalf of agriculture. In total, Agri-Futures has delivered more than $16 million into NS agriculture projects. The funding programs have included:
Under the CAAP program, service standards were tracked for projects regarding: the number of business days for the application review and notification of funding (20 days); the contribution agreement creation process (10 days); and for the financial payments categories (10 days). Service Standards for those three areas were all exceeded with a rounded average of 17 business days, 4 business days and 3 business days recorded for each, respectively. The level of service that applicants received is a source of pride for our organization. Our administrative costs were 10.7% for delivery of CAAP!
