New Producer Program

BACKGROUND:

The BC Broiler Hatching Egg Commission provides for a New Producer Program.  Individuals who have a genuine interest in starting a career as a hatching egg producer may apply to be included in a lottery for the purpose of selecting eligible applicants to fill unoccupied spaces on the prospective producer list, whereby those randomly selected by a third party may be eligible for quota.  The Program is intended to reduce quota as being a barrier to entry.

The Commission maintains a new producer allocation pool that is funded by transfer assessments, under its current quota management policies.  These quota management policies are subject to review as part of the current Strategic Plan.

For specific information on the Program, see Schedule 1 of the Consolidated Order (link below).
