The federal Agriculture and Agri-Foods ministry has launched a more transparent, merit-based selection process for the National Program Advisory Committee (NPAC). The NPAC selection process will focus on identifying high-quality candidates who demonstrate Canada’s diversity. NPAC serves as the primary mechanism for producer consultations with respect to the business risk management programs and risk management issues, providing advice and guidance to federal, provincial, and territorial governments.

NPAC is looking for candidates from across the country, to fill up to 11 member positions. The candidates must have experience owning and/or operating a farming enterprise, and must participate in both the AgriStability and AgriInvest programs. Candidates should also have an understanding of the mechanics of the business risk management programs, the capacity of producers to manage risks, and the role innovation plays in advancing the agriculture industry.
