The Farm Crisis: Its Causes and Solutions

This report is based on two briefs that the NFU submitted to Parliamentary Secretary Wayne Easter’s consultations on farm income. The first brief, submitted January 20, 2005 is entitled Solving the Farm Crisis: A Sixteen-Point Plan for Canadian Farm and Food Security. The second brief, submitted June 7, 2005 is entitled Understanding the Farm Crisis. These two pieces, brought together here in this report, lay out both the causes of the farm income crisis and a set of affordable solutions.
