Alberta Environmental Farm Plan Renewal

Effective April 1, 2018

  • Producers who have an EFP older than 10 years will have to renew their EFP to eligible for new funding under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership Program (CAP)
  • It is strongly recommended that producers complete the renewal online to make future renewals easier,


Why is Alberta EFP instituting a renewal period?

  1. Alberta is the only province that does not have a renewal period. EFP is harmonizing nationally and they expect all prov-inces will harmonize the renewal period
  2. EFP’s are part of sustainable sourcing programs in Canada (potato sustainability initiative, proAction, VBP). Alberta EFP is anticipating more initiatives will use EFP as the Environmental backbone of their sustainable sourcing initiative.

Who decided the renewal period would be instituted?

Alberta EFP Stakeholder Advisory Committee approved the renewal period

What does this mean to me?

For producers if you to apply for CAP grants you will need to have a current EFP.

Beat the rush by renewing before CAP funding becomes available!!!
