To accomplish its mission, IAPO has offered financing and advisory services since 1984. Farm financing has involved all agricultural sectors – aquaculture, beekeeping, beef, dairy, field crops, goat, horticulture, maple syrup, sheep, swine, and related agribusinesses on and off reserve across Ontario.
IAPO also provides general business financing to First Nations entrepreneurs and businesses. To date, IAPO has provided financing for construction, transportation, trucking, retail, service, and manufacturing businesses. All inquiries are considered.
IAPO offers a range of skill-building workshops and learning opportunities for new and established farmers of all levels and experience. Check our calendar often for upcoming sessions.
Farm Advisory Services
To support First Nation farmers, IAPO offers farm advisory services to assist in areas such as livestock and crop production, marketing, farm financial management and family farm succession. With the help of experience staff, IAPO will help farmers make informed decisions that will benefit their businesses.
Running your farm business is more than just financing. We can provide access to tools needed to succeed.
4-H for First Nations
Young farmers are our future. That’s why IAPO is proud to participate in the 4-H for First Nations aimed at helping initiate and support the development of 4-H clubs in Ontario First Nations communities.
