Stakeholder Advisory Committee

The Stakeholder Advisory Committee is established to provide guidance and advice to the Alberta Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) Program with respect to its future as a stronger EFP that is, or forms the basis of, a non-commodity-specific sustainability designation. This purpose recognizes the benefits that this will offer Alberta’s (and Canada’s) producers who may have diverse operations that can include livestock and multiple crops. The Committee is composed of interested and affected stakeholder organizations representing a balance of sectoral and non-sectoral interest from the crop, livestock and food industries as well as representation from the Governments of Alberta and Canada.
