In our province, we are required to enrol in AgriStability because there is a group insurance program for several sectors. In Quebec, the enrolment rate for AgriStability is over 70%. That is what brings the national average up to 31%. Were it not for Quebec, the national average would be under 30%.
The Agri-Québec Plus program is the main tool helping to rectify the situation in Quebec. The program comes in at an 85% reference margin, but it is capped when an operation is profitable so as not to give undue compensation. So, there is a way to adjust the program at the national level as well.
