Dear Mr. Vercaigne:
Thank you for your recent emails to my office and the Honourable Christine Tell, MLA for
Regina Wascana Plains.
I understand that yo have had discussions with Minitry officials regarding the Farm
Development Initiative (FBDI) under the Growing Forward 2 (GF2) framework The
specific objective of FBDI is to strategically enhance farmers' and ranchers' farm
management skills. Eligible clients are resident farmers and ranchers, age 18 and over, who
are actively involved in or are beginning their farming career.
I have asked my officials to review your file again to determine the eligibility of your
training resources under the program. Ministry officials will contact you directly. I
encourage you to continue to work with them through the process.
Thank you for your correspondence.
