Episode 89: Understanding AgriStability w/Justin Chaput

In this week’s episode, "Understanding AgriStability” Tracy speaks to Justin Chaput from Talbot & Associates about the AgiStability program.

Of the two programs, AgriStability can be considered the more complicated of the two programs. Both AgriInvest and AgriStability are a joint federal, provincial, and territorial business risk management program and AgriStability is a margin-based program that provides support when you experience more substantial income losses. So, what does that mean? Join Tracy and Justin as they dive into an episode dedicated 100% to demystifying this often-misunderstood program. Justin explains what the program is, the main goal behind it, how it works when it kicks in, and who qualifies.

Because this program can be a bit contentious, they spend a good portion of the interview discussing some of producer’s frustrations. Both Justin and Tracy share some of the common frustrations they hear, and Tracy is a big believer in both programs. She shares her story on how AgriStability has dramatically impacted her farming operation.

Justin is a partner and the Agriculture Team Manager at Talbot & Associates. He is passionate about these programs and works with his farm clients and these programs daily. If you ever had questions about this program or wanted to learn more, this episode is for you. Don’t miss it!

Two things that you can bet money on when it comes to Justin Chaput is: (1) out of any person in any room, he’ll be wearing the most interesting socks and (2) the genius perspective he brings to his work.

Justin started with T&A as a junior accountant in 2001 and became a partner in 2013. He’s known for creating game-changing opportunities for clients, making the Ag Team the best it can be and mentoring team mates (except the ones who give him a hard time for being an enthusiastic Toronto Maple Leafs fan – Justin doesn’t even make eye contact with those people).

Justin is thankful every day to work in a job he loves – an important belief instilled in him by his parents. His dream is to be a great father to his son, Félix, and a supportive husband to his partner, Mel; cheering them both on through life – adopting their goals as his own.
