Alberta Environmental Farm Plan implements renewal period
Effective April 1, 2018, producers will need to have an EFP completion letter dated within the past 10 years to be considered current and eligible for cost-share funding with the Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change programs of the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP). Currently, Alberta is the only provincial/territorial EFP that does not have a renewal period. To learn more about the implementation of the renewal period, visit Alberta EFP's website.
The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) is a voluntary, whole farm, self-assessment tool that helps producers identify their environmental risks and develop plans to mitigate identified risks. Alberta EFP is responsible for the Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) program across the province, and works with Alberta producers and the industry groups that represent them to create awareness of the designation and its benefits, and to encourage producers to complete the EFP process.
