Agricultural Climate Solutions (ACS) is a multi-stream program that will help to develop and implement farming practices to tackle climate change. Through agricultural practices, such as shelterbelts or cover crops, farmland can store carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
ACS-Living Labs is a $185 million, 10-year program that aims to establish a strong Canada-wide network of regional collaborations led by farmers and including scientists and other sectoral stakeholders. Together, they will develop and share natural solutions and farming practices to ensure farms remain competitive and that our water, air, and soil are sustainable for generations to come.
To be eligible for the ACS program, applicants must form a large network of partnerships within a province, including agricultural non-profits, Indigenous organizations, and environmental groups.
