FAQS

Application Process

Absolutely! Based on eligibility, producers have access to all programs (APP, CLP and GSLGPP). As the qualified agricultural products are used to determine eligible advance amount, they cannot be duplicated over more than one program.

To maximize your availability of funds here are a few examples:

  1. apply for ginseng in-production under the APP (1M cap) and apply for ginseng stored in inventory under the GSLGPP (1M cap), which potentially would allow access of up to $2,000,000.
  2. apply for corn in-production under the APP (1M cap) and apply for soybeans in-production under the CLP (750K cap), which potentially would allow access of up to $1,750,000.

Repayment Process

Repayment can be made via (i) pre-authorized payment at time of application, or by calling or emailing our repayment department; or (ii) through your financial institution online by selecting the payment company “AGRICULTURAL CREDIT CORPORATION” as the payee.

Repayment is required within thirty (30) calendar days after your first sale of the commodity, or by the program repayment deadline, whichever is earlier.

Proof of Sale (receipts) from crop sales and livestock sales are required by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada under terms of the legislation to verify date of sales and amount of product sold used to repay the loan. All APP loan payments for storable commodities must be accompanied by proof of sale after January 31st , and repayment for standard livestock must be always accompanied by proof of sale. 

If Proof of Sale reflects the repayment was not made within 30 calendar days, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada requires ACC charge the Producer a Penalty for Repayments Without Proof of Sales (RWPS) at the rate outlined under the Terms and Conditions of the Repayment Agreement.

The pre-authorized debit option continues to be available. You have the choice of pre-authorized debit or pay online. For those who already have a pre-authorized debit in place, to repay the loan advance in full, you do not need to do anything else.  Proof of sale is still required for payment of storable commodities after Jan 31, and always for all standard livestock payments.
