ALR and ALC Input Encouraged

UBCM encourages local governments to provide input to the Minister of Agriculture’s advisory committee preparing recommendations on revitalizing the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) and the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC).

Local governments are partners in agricultural land preservation, working with the ALC on coordinated and collaborative planning. Approximately 150 local governments have ALR lands within their jurisdiction. Local governments are usually the first point of contact when an application is made under the ALC Act. This is an opportunity for local governments to comment on the preservation agricultural land.

A discussion paper and online survey are available, with submissions being accepted until April 30, 2018. UBCM will also be making a submission to the Minister’s Advisory Committee.
