Safety & Health Insurance Available and Farmer Insurance Needs Executive Summary

It is a common view that farmers do not have adequate health insurance to manage their health needs given the physical and mental risks that come with farming. The cost of farmers’ injuries and illness can be mitigated if farmers had more preventative, appropriate, and cost-effective health and disability coverage.

This project is to perform a preliminary overview of the health benefit plans currently offered by provincial and territorial farm organizations and a summary of the available coverage from traditional insurance providers.
