As part of the provincial government’s public consultation process on agricultural crown lands (ACL) leases and permits, KAP presented a submission on behalf of farmers and producers in Manitoba.
KAP acknowledges the dedication of the Manitoba government in consulting on the proposed changes to the ACL regulation.
KAP recommends that the Manitoba government:
• Provide further clarity in the form of an FAQ or policy guidance document made available online to assist farmers and ranchers in interpreting the proposed list of eligible family transferees;
• Consider all possible solutions to balance the opposing interests in Crown land (regarding unit transfers) including a one-time option for a final unit transfer; and
• Consider the impact of the proposed amendments in terms of rural economic development and community building in areas where there are significantly more Crown land leases.
