Growing Forward 2 (GF2) is a policy framework that provides $71.2 million annually for innovation, competitiveness and market development in the agriculture sector and also supports Business Risk Management (BRM) programming. GF2 expires on March 31, 2018, and work is underway to develop the Next Policy Framework (NPF). This includes ongoing engagement with the sector. Consultations and survey responses are helpful as they will inform negotiations at the federal-provincial-territorial level and influence the NPF program suite.
