CAIS Program Structure and Performance: Evidence from Ontario
AbstractThe Canadian Agricultural Income Stabilization (CAIS) program was approved in late 2003. It now serves as Canadaâ€™s sole farm safety net program, having replaced the Net Income Stabilization Account (NISA), Canadian Farm Income Program (CFIP), and provincial companion programs. However, the mechanisms of operation and actual performance of CAIS in providing stability to farm incomes are relatively unknown. In particular, to develop expectations of future farm costs and returns and to determine their support for CAIS as the sole safety net under the federal-provincial Agricultural Policy Framework (APF), farmers and their representatives need a concrete understanding of how CAIS can be expected to work relative to its predecessors.
