The Minister’s Advisory Committee sought your views to deliver recommendations for a strong and robust Agricultural Land Reserve.
The public was invited to read an discussion paper prior to completing and an online survey.
Feedback was accepted until April 30, 2018 at 4 p.m. via the online survey or mail.
How can my contribution make a difference?

Public input is vital to the success of this initiative. The committee will use the input it receives during the engagement process to develop recommendations for the provincial government’s consideration. The recommendations may include changes to the current legislative, regulatory, and administrative framework to revitalize the ALR and the ALC.
