Allocations

The Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off is allocated to marketing, research and public and stakeholder engagement by the provincial cattle associations that remit the check-off. Each province submits the percentage that they wish to allocate to each of the functions, and can also allocate back to their home provincial organization to conduct marketing, research and public and stakeholder engagement programs that show a benefit to the Canadian beef industry as a whole.

The allocations are submitted one year in advance, to ensure that any funding changes to any of the functions, facilitated by Canada Beef, the Beef Cattle Research Council or the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, are able to plan for the funding change in their next business plan.

If you have questions about the allocation percentages in your province, contact your provincial cattle association.
