Beginning this year, the province of Quebec will supplement AgriInvest with the new Agri-Québec program, an agricultural income stabilization account program that is very similar to the AgriInvest program.

The Budget proposes amendments to provide the same income tax treatment to investments made under the Agri-Québec program as is currently provided to investments under the AgriInvest program. These amendments will apply for the 2011 and subsequent taxation years
