Exchange January 2018

Deputy Minister Rick Burton
Wishing you a happy New Year and a productive 2018! So far, the winter has been short on the moisture needed for the 2018 growing season. Let’s hope we see some snow sometime this winter.

The Ministry of Agriculture was busy with the introduction of several pieces of legislation this fall and the passing of the Agrologists Act. You can read more about the Agrologists Act and the Animal Protection Act in this edition of Exchange.

Spring 2018 will also be a busy time with the implementation of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, or CAP. CAP will be replacing Growing Forward 2 (GF2), which expires March 31, 2018. Please stay tuned for information on GF2 program roll-up and the launch of CAP programming.

We hope you find the information in Exchange both informative and useful.

Rick Burton
Deputy Minister
