Stable Agricultural Communities

Maintaining the viability of farms and rural communities continues to be a priority for this government. Recent events like outbreaks of disease and severe weather serve as reminders that safe, affordable food production cannot be taken for granted.

Efforts to develop a long-term strategy for the health, sustainability and growth of Alberta's agriculture industry will be accelerated, based on the insights of Ag Summit 2000. Key among those efforts will be the introduction of a new policy dealing with intensive livestock operations and a renewal of efforts to provide Alberta farmers with marketing choice for their wheat and barley.

The government stands by its commitment to support Alberta farmers in times of need.
