Thank you for visiting the Agricultural Land Commission Regulation Engagement website.

Government’s public consultation period on the topic of potential changes to the Agricultural Land Commission Act is now closed. The consultation period ran from July 22, 2014 to noon on August 22, 2014.

The Ministry sought guidance on:

  1. Some proposed additional activities that could be allowed on farmland in the Agricultural Land Reserve without a requirement to make an application to the Agricultural Land Commission;
  2. Whether and to what extent these allowable uses should vary between different regions of the province, and;
  3. What parameters should be put around proposed new uses.

On this site you can still download the Consultation Paper and learn more about the Agricultural Land Commission Act.

What happens next?

In the coming weeks, a Ministry team will read through all of the comments, then theme and categorize them with help of analytics software. Together with agriculture policy experts, reports and summaries will be created that will identify main themes, as well as specific recommendations and ideas. After our review, a summary of these findings will be posted to this website.
