Support for Dairy, Poultry, and Egg Farmers

Key Supports, Since 2015

  • $2.7 billion has been made available to compensate eligible dairy, poultry, and egg farmers as a result of CETA and CPTPP.
  • Dairy farmers will receive cash payments of $468 million in 2020-21, $469 million in 2021-22 and $468 million in 2022-23.
  • A further $100 million has been provided for dairy processors to adapt to CETA.
  • To date, all import rights created in recent trade agreements have been provisionally allocated to the industry free of charge.

We stand fully behind our supply managed sector, which supports our family farms and the vitality of our rural areas. We are committed to full and fair compensation with respect to the new NAFTA.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Work with supply-managed sectors to determine compensation within the first year of a new mandate.
