Background 

MCGA recognizes that the current suite of Business Risk Management Tools, especially AgriStability, is not suiting the needs of most farmers. It has been a top priority to work with lobbying partners at a provincial and national level to push for urgent changes to support farmers now, and develop an improved program that supports farmers in the long term.
