Albertans have the opportunity to share ideas about the future of provincial and national agriculture programs through an online survey.

Alberta is working with the federal government, other provinces and territories to develop a new five-year agricultural policy framework to replace the current Growing Forward 2 agreement, which expires March 31, 2018.
“Negotiating the next agriculture policy framework with the federal government is an important conversation about how we can support our sector, our rural communities, and our producers,” says Oneil Carlier, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry.
“It’s important that we hear from producers and other stakeholders so that we can craft an agreement that supports sustainable growth and makes life better for Alberta producers and their communities. When agriculture succeeds, rural Alberta succeeds.”
The online survey is open to all Albertans, but will be of particular interest to those in the agriculture sector.
Agriculture sector representatives will also be able to provide input during a series of four consultation roundtables being held over the next few weeks.
The survey is open until May 8.
