Guidance from the Ministry of Agriculture

A factsheet has been prepared by the Ministry of Agriculture to clarify recent legislative changes for local governments, communities and agricultural stakeholders.

In recent months, the Provincial government has updated legislation regarding the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), non-farm impacts, and the roles of local governments and the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) in the ALR.

It is our understanding that the Ministry intends to engage with UBCM and embark on additional ALR work including Ministry and ALC guidance to support local governments in their important role in the ALR.

For more information, please contact Willow Minaker, Director, Strengthening Farming, Ministry of Agriculture.
