How often should you renew?
We recommend you update your EFP often, especially when you make major changes to your operation.
Effective April 1, 2018, producers will need to have an EFP completion letter dated within the last 10 years, before payment will be issued, to be considered current and eligible for cost-share funding with the Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change programs of the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP).
If your completion letter is older than 10 years, you will need to do a new workbook and action plan.
Tip : Your technician is there to support you through each step of an EFP. You can complete the WorkBook online on your own; however, a technician can save you time by walking you through the process and is happy to help!
