About the On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF)
Agricultural Climate Solutions – On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF) is a $200 million, 3-year fund (from 2021 to 2024) which funds 12 different programs (PWCP being one such program) to support farmers in adopting beneficial management practices (BMPs) that store carbon and reduce greenhouse gases as well as provide other environmental benefits such as improved biodiversity and soil health. Activities such as outreach, education, and training are supported to promote the adaption of the BMPs.

The Prairie Watersheds Climate Program (PWCP)
The Prairie Watersheds Climate Program (PWCP) is led by the Manitoba Association of Watersheds (MAW) and delivered by Manitoba’s Watershed Districts and the Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds (SAW). Please read MAW’s press release regarding PWCP.
The PWCP provides up to $40 million in financial support, through OFCAF, to producers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan to accelerate their adoption and implementation of on-farm beneficial management practices (BMPs) to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, support production efficiency, sustainability and resiliency on their farm operations. To assist producers with their adoption of new BMPs, the program offers producers resources to support BMP implementation and provide BMP design recommendations.
