Environmental Farm Plan

The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) Program supports farm operations to complete agri-environmental risk assessments.

Benefits of completing an Environmental Farm Plan include:

  • Improved sustainability of British Columbia’s agricultural industry
  • Recognition of your efforts to manage land in an environmentally sustainable manner
  • Enhanced marketing opportunities and improved relationships with environmental agencies
  • Improved response to environmental incidents through contingency planning

A qualified planning advisor will work with qualified farmers or ranchers to complete a confidential Environmental Farm Plan Assessment that outlines recommended actions to help you improve your operation.

Upon completion of your plan, project funding to increase your agricultural sustainability and contribute to a cleaner, healthier environment may be available through the Beneficial Management Practices Program.
