Maintaining a healthy environment is essential to the success of Alberta's agricultural producers. An Environmental Farm Plan is a self-assessment process that allows producers to identify and evaluate environmental risks and strengths that may be present within their agricultural operation. Through this voluntary and confidential process, producers work with a technician to complete an online workbook that they are able to review and update anytime.
The online workbook is aimed at creating awareness and is a personal assessment tool that provides producers with the evidence that there may be some areas of possible environmental risk in their current operation.
Effective April 1, 2018, producers will need to have an EFP completion letter dated within the last 10 years to be considered current and eligible for cost-share funding under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) Environmental Stewardship and Climate Change program.
