March 22, 2017 - "Budget 2017 builds on this funding by proposing to invest $70 million over six years, starting in 2017–18, to further support agricultural discovery science and innovation, with a focus on addressing emerging priorities, such as climate change and soil and water conservation." - Building a strong middle class, Budget 2017-2018, p.108 - Government of Canada

September 03, 2016 - "The governments of Canada and Manitoba will invest more than $366,000 in organic grain research at the University of Manitoba.  Terry Duguid, Member of Parliament on behalf of Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay and Manitoba Agriculture Minister Ralph Eichler announced this new initiative will be funded through Growing Forward 2 and will help mark National Organic Week, which runs September 17 to 25. The funding, provided through the Grain Innovation Hub, will be used to replace field equipment used by the university's organic research program, including cultivators for grains, corn and beans, a comb-cutter, manure spreader, seeder and tractor. Governments will also help support two years of organic research at the university, totalling $50,000." - Governments Invest in New Equipment and Resources for Organic Grain Research - Agriculture and Agri-food Canada​​​​​​​

March 22, 2016 - "To support modern agricultural science in Canada, Budget 2016 proposes to provide $30 million over six years, starting in 2016–17, to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to support advanced research in agricultural genomics. Investments in specialized scientific equipment and expertise will allow Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to accelerate the DNA analysis and digital recording of the department’s collection of over 17 million physical specimens of insects, plants, fungi, bacteria and nematodes. This will improve public accessibility to this collection and will support research in priority areas, including climate change and the rapid identification and prevention of biological threats to agriculture. Over the coming year, the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food will develop an approach for additional investments in agricultural science and research, informed by the review of federal support for fundamental science to be undertaken by the Minister of Science. This will allow for future investments in agricultural research to be well-positioned within Canada’s broader research ecosystem." - Growing The Middle Class, Budget 2016-2017, p.118 - Government of Canada
