Helping farmers innovate and expand : the Canadian Agricultural Loans Act (CALA) Program.: A72-134/2017E-PDF

"The Canadian Agricultural Loans Act (CALA) Program is a loan guarantee program designed to increase the availability of loans to farmers and agricultural co-operatives. Farmers can use these loans to establish, improve, and develop farms, while agricultural co-operatives may also access loans to process, distribute, or market the products of farming. Through the CALA Program, the Government of Canada is supporting the renewal of the agricultural sector and enabling co-operatives to better seize market opportunities. Under the CALA, the federal government guarantees, to the lender, repayment of 95% of a net loss on an eligible loan issued. The maximum aggregate loan limit for any one farm operation is $500,000"--From the publisher.
