According to documents obtained by The Fur-Bearers, mink farms in Nova Scotia accessed $99,380,834 in AgriStability funding between 2013 and 2018. AgriStability is a risk management program that is offered to agricultural producers to help protect them from large declines in their farming income caused by production loss, increased costs, or market conditions. The costs for AgriStability are shared by the federal and provincial/territorial governments. Given the public health threats of mink farming seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Fur-Bearers are calling on provincial and federal governments to redirect funding to help fur farms transition to more sustainable and ethical industries.
