Canadian AgriSafety Applied Science Program

Agrivita Canada Inc. through the Canadian AgriSafety Applied Science Program aims to stimulate and support applied science and innovation targeting sustainability and productivity in Canadian agriculture by improving environmental, occupational, and workplace health and safety for farmers, their families and agricultural workers. 

Agrivita Canada is seeking Letters of Intent for applied science projects in the priority areas of A) Viruses and Infectious Diseases, B) Farm Stress and Mental Health, C) Inhalation Exposures, D) Injuries and Accidents, E) Indigenous Agriculture, F) Under-represented Populations (Seasonal Workers, Women, Youth), and G) Climate Change, Green Technologies and Safety. Based on occupational hygiene principles and the hierarchy of control, the AgriSafety Program seeks LOI’s for applied science projects aimed at addressing gaps in research-to-practice in these priority areas. However, highly innovative and topical projects in other areas will be considered.

Amount: up to $500,000 over 4 years, with an equivalent amount of matching dollars provided by the Project team from other sources. Matching dollars do not need to be secured in order to submit a Letter of Intent, but anticipated sources should be identified in preparation for confirmation at a later stage. 

Timeline: 

July 15, 2021 - LOI submission deadline 

September 15, 2021 - Invited applications due to Agrivita for peer-review
