The governments of Canada and Ontario are committing up to $7 million to rapidly increase processing capacity in meat processing plants across the province. This initiative builds on the $7.2 million invested last year through the first intake, and is part of the governments’ continued investments to support the sector’s growth and strengthen the food supply chain.

Through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (the Partnership), the second intake of the Meat Processors Capacity Improvement Initiative will provide up to $150,000 per project for handling and processing equipment to increase efficiency, productivity and food safety. It will also cover consulting and engineering costs associated with planning future projects. The intake will open for applications on November 19, 2021.
