A NEW website to help farmers prepare for emergencies, contingency plan and improve their capacity to face uncertainty.
Ask questions. Get answers. Find resources.

Farm Management Canada has put together a new interactive website that will allow producers to ask all their questions about emergency preparedness and contingency planning through an online forum, and then receive answers based on the knowledge and experience of industry experts.

The site has a question forum where you can vote for a question that has already been asked or write your own, an answers section where you can find the answers to all the questions that have already been answered, and a resource library which contains useful tools to help farmers prepare for uncertainty. has launched today and is available to all Canadian producers for free.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
