The FCC Ag Safety Day Coordinator Fund is designed to offset some of the operational costs associated with hosting a Progressive Agriculture Safety Day.

The funding is provided through a partnership between Farm Credit Canada and the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association.

Safety Day Coordinators that apply for funding can receive up to $1,500 per event to help cover costs associated with holding these important farm safety events. Only Safety Days registered through the Progressive Agriculture Foundation may apply.

Progressive Agriculture Safety Days typically consist of one-day, age-appropriate events that help children learn how to be safe on the farm. It’s the largest rural safety and health education program for children in North America.

We are currently accepting applications for eligible 2018 Safety Days. Please review the application process below.
