by PEI Adapt
August 16, 2009

PEI ADAPT Council is pleased to announce we are accepting applications for the new Canadian Agricultural and Adaptation Program (CAAP).

The Council is managing PEI’s $3.5 million share of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s five-year, $163-million CAAP.

CAAP is building on the success of the Advancing Canadian Agriculture and Agri-Food (ACAAF) program, also managed by PEI ADAPT.

CAAP’s objective is to facilitate the agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector’s ability to seize opportunities, to respond to new and emerging issues, and to pathfind and pilot solutions to new and ongoing issues in order to help it adapt and remain competitive.

CAAP will focus on:

Seizing opportunities, taking advantage of a situation or circumstance to develop a new idea, product, niche, or market opportunity to the benefit of the sector.

Responding to new and emerging issues, addressing issues that were not of concern previously, or were not known about at all.

Pathfinding and piloting solutions to new and ongoing issues, testing ways of dealing with new issues, or find new ways to deal with existing issues.

Pathfinding means looking at different options to prepare the sector to face the future and remain competitive.

Piloting means the testing of ideas or approaches to see if they are effective enough to use in everyday applications in the sector.
