Already have an EFP? Alberta EFP is instituting a renewal period. 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 with the Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change programs of the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP).

The Lac Ste. Anne County office is at 56521 Range Road 65, just south of HWY 43, 1 mile east of Sangudo.

Reasons to Complete an EFP

Maintaining a healthy environment is essential to the success of Alberta’s agricultural producers. The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) program helps you identify and address environmental risks in your operation. It will also increase your understanding of legal requirements related to environmental issues.

  • Protecting water, air and soil quality is key to the sustainable production of crops and livestock and to leaving a healthy and productive farm for the next generation. An EFP will identify what you are already doing well and pinpoint where improvements can be made.
  • By addressing these risks you increase operational efficiency while reducing farm costs, which results in increased profit for you.
  • With your EFP completion certificate, you become eligible for some funding under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
  • Pairing environmental stewardship with agricultural production is also crucial in the marketing of your products. Consumers are increasingly concerned about the safety and quality of the food they eat and how that food is grown/raised. Sustainable sourcing is becoming a requirement of many major food purchasers, from manufacturers to restaurants. Having an EFP demonstrates to the public, government, lenders and/or investors that you are managing your environmental risks.  To learn more about sustainable sourcing, click here.
