Production Insurance (formerly known as Crop Insurance) has significantly changed its program. To see how the new changes will specifically benefit you, please browse this website or call your local Production Insurance Office.


The Role of Production Insurance on Your Farm

Farmers have to deal with the unfair hand sometimes dealt by nature. Uncontrollable weather can ruin crops, and wreak havoc with farm budgets. Production insurance offers financial protection against crop losses due to uncontrollable weather. Like any insurance plan, production insurance pays compensation to ease some of the financial hardship if you suffer misfortune. Buying production insurance is a smart business decision, similar to house insurance, car insurance or life insurance.

Our objective is to continue to work with farmers to make production insurance more efficient and effective to strengthen British Columbia's valuable farming community, and to protect our food supply.
