Message from CEO + Important Resources


(Updated January 26th, 2021)

Although your RPAP does qualify you as a registered farm business, due to the rapidly changing Provincial Emergency Order, please call the Department of Justice and Public Safety travel registration number at 1-833-948-2800 or click on this link: for requirements at the border and for COVID testing. Please also check the Provincial Government websites where you are travelling for the most recent information for commercial transportation. We will keep updating you as we learn new information.


*Note that rules and regulations are subject to change at a moments notice based on Provincial circumstances regarding Covid-19. 

We encourage producers who have questions in regards to the RPAP program, including questions regarding processing times for renewals, to refer to the FAQ document from the Registrar of Farms. Click here to view document.
