Feb. 8: Feedback on Agricultural Policy Framework Sought
The province’s Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is collecting online feedback throughout February and March in English and French at Next Agricultural Policy Framework. The feedback will help the department develop programming and initiatives for the next framework covering 2018-2023, which will replace the current one known as Growing Forward 2. Islanders are invited to provide their input on programs or initiatives for the following priority areas:
- Markets and trade;
- Science, research and innovation;
- Environmental sustainability and climate change;
- Value-added agriculture and agri-food processing; and
- Public trust.
