Farmer Assistance Program

The Farmer Assistance Program is a service that provides confidential, professional counselling services to farmers, farm employees and their families.  You can get help with a wide range of problems that can affect your personal well-being and work performance.  These problems include work or family pressures,  depression, bereavement, elder care concerns, financial concerns, job stress, alcohol or drug dependency, marital problems, children’s issues, etc.

This is a strictly confidential service provided by counsellors who have a wide range of experience in dealing with such issues. Bilingual counselling  is also offered.   The first six sessions of counselling are offered free to members of both farm organizations in the Province.  Following that, the cost is  $90 per session.

You can contact a counsellor in confidence  by calling 1-800-736-8006.  Hours are flexible and appointments can be made at the earliest convenience.
