Farm Debt Mediation Service

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Government of Canada

As a farmer having trouble meeting your financial obligations, you may be able to use the services of a mediator. You and your creditor can meet in a neutral setting to find a mutually acceptable solution.

You are eligible if you farm commercially and you meet one of the following criteria:

  • You can't make your payments on time.
  • The value of your property, if sold, is not enough to cover your debts.

The service is:

  • Free
  • Voluntary
  • Private and confidential
  • An alternative to going to court

A financial consultant can help you develop a recovery plan before you meet with your creditor and a mediator.
