About the financial grants

There are two agri-food export funds offered by our governmental partners, one by the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ) and the other by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAC). Management of these funds is entrusted to the Agri-Food Export Group Québec–Canada, based on a partnership established with MAPAQ and AAC over 10 years ago.
