Request for Proposals
Exploring the Connection between Mental Health and Farm Business Management

Farm Management Canada was established in 1992 to increase the awareness and adoption of farm business management practices to position Canada’s farmers for sustainable growth and competitiveness.

Farm Management Canada is issuing this Request for Proposals from industry stakeholders interested in conducting an industry-wide, national study on the connection between mental health and farm business management.

The goal of this study is to explore factors influencing mental health, and how we can support mental health through business management, support business management through mental health, and the critical path forward. We further seek to explore whether demographic differences exist between regions, production sectors, gender and age, and steps we can take to meet these individual needs.

Proposals must be submitted electronically by 4 p.m. EST on March 29, 2019.

Proposals may be individual or collaborative.

We are incredibly interested in the results of the study and what the findings mean in terms of our approach as an organization, and for the industry at large, in supporting business development, competitiveness, and the adoption of farm business management practices to achieve sustainable growth including positive mental health for the Canadian agricultural sector.

All proposals will remain confidential.
