Farm and Ranch Workplace Legislation Consultation Period Extended

Albertans have more time to provide their input on recommendations to apply occupational health and safety (OHS) rules to the province's farms and ranches.

The deadline for feedback to the technical working group recommendations is being extended to Feb. 26, 2018, from Jan. 15, 2018, to ensure Albertans have the opportunity to review the recommendations and provide their input.

Four technical working groups reviewed OHS rules as they apply to farms and ranches and submitted their recommendations to government. You have the opportunity to look at those recommendations and let government know what you think about them. Government will take your feedback into consideration before making changes to OHS laws.

Visit to view the technical working group reports. You may submit your feedback by February 26 to or via mail to:
