SERVICES FOR EVERYONE
Consulting services are offered for all agricultural productions in the following areas:

Thanks to this wide range of subsidized services, agricultural and agri-food businesses can improve their competitiveness and implement responsible practices.
The financial assistance rate for consultant services varies between 50% and 85%, depending on the need and the eligible bonuses. The total financial assistance granted per agricultural business is $ 30,000 maximum for the 2018-2023 period, or $ 40,000 for new farmers, start-ups and certified organic businesses.
All agricultural and agri-food businesses are eligible for consulting services and financial assistance; simply contact the coordinator of the Réseau Agriconseils Network, Mr. Katéhé Traoré, by email or by phone (819 281-7832).

The Agriconseils Networks, present in thirteen regions of the province, were created by the ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ) and the Union des producteurs agricoles to optimize and bring together all consulting services. Through them, agricultural producers have access to sound advice in their decision-making and to grow their business.
