  • financial incentives and technical assistance to enable the administration and enforcement acts and the implementation of agricultural polices at the municipal level

Membership

  • Three Councillors
  • Four farm members
  • Of the four farm members appointed, two members must reside west of Highway #2, and two east of Highway #2.
  • All members also sit on the ALUS Partnership Advisory Committee.

Term/Expiry

  • Appointments are for three-year terms and members may serve for a maximum of two consecutive terms.
