CAHRC AgriHR Toolkit


The AgriHR Toolkit, developed by the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) through extensive consultations with producers across Canada, offers assistance every step of the way with guides, templates, resources and the critical questions that you need to ask and answer about your business. It offers tools that you can download and customize for your farm. The AgSector Program has partnered with CAHRC to be able to offer this tool to all NSFA members.

Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture members have an opportunity to participate in an innovative Preferred Pharmacy Provider Program offered by MHCSI- Managed Health Care Services Inc.

Participation in the program is purely voluntary; however, we encourage you to participate by choosing one of the participating preferred pharmacy provider locations when filling your prescriptions.

  • Lawtons Drugs
  • Sobeys Pharmacy
  • Foodland Pharmacy
  • Pharmacy
  • Thrifty Foods Pharmacy
  • Safeway Pharmacy
  • Sobeys Pharmacy by Mail

The key benefits of this program are as follows:

  • When using your MHCSI drug card when filling prescriptions / accessing pharmacy services at MHCSI participating preferred pharmacy provider network locations you will receive additional coverage up to $2.00 per prescription against your out-of-pocket expenses (or $0.50 per prescription if using Sobeys Pharmacy by Mail). This coverage will be administered for you at the point of sale (i.e. on-line at the pharmacy). By using the MHCSI participating preferred pharmacies, you will save money on the overall cost of your drug benefit expenses.  Please note: You must also present your Primary drug card (and / or any other drug card you may also have {on a spousal plan}, for example) to the pharmacy. This program does not replace your Primary drug card, but offers you supplementary coverage to your primary plan.
  • Also, each member (and spouse- if family coverage) receives a Lawtons Drugs Client Group Partner Discount Card which entitles you to the Lawtons Front Store Purchase Program. You will enjoy a wide range of discounts on your front store purchases at any Lawtons Drugs in Atlantic Canada when you use this card.
  • Members can earn valuable AIR MILES® reward miles* on their prescription and other purchases at Lawtons Drugs, Sobeys Pharmacy and Sobeys Pharmacy by Mail.
