Planning for Agriculture

Planning for Agriculture is a key component (along with Farm Practices Protection) of the Strengthening Farming Program.

Legislative tools housed in B.C.'s Local Government Act and Land Title Act assist local governments and first nations to encourage a secure and stable working environment for farming and ranching in their communities.

The Planning for Agriculture component focuses on developing strong working relationships between local governments, the farm community and the Province to ensure that agriculture is given appropriate consideration in planning processes. Ministry staff can provide guidance and support through a number of distinct opportunities:

Provincial Agri-Teams

AGRI-TEAMS consist of two or three specialists throughout BC to provide direct assistance to local governments and other stakeholders concerning agricultural land. Each AGRI-TEAM is made up of at least one ministry Regional Agrologist and one Agricultural Land Commission Regional Planner.

Agricultural Land Use Inventories (ALUI) have been conducted in various regions of the province.
