Pilot project looks at many ways farms contribute to society

Quebec's Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ) launched a pilot program supporting multi-functionality in agriculture. The program – which recognizes the social, economic and environmental contribution of agriculture to the quality of community life – will fund individual or group projects that benefit farms and their surrounding communities, e.g.:

  • improve pasture land
  • increase attractiveness
  • increase accessibility to rural spaces
  • preserve our agricultural heritage
  • protect biodiversity
  • provide services to the community
