Normal Farm Practices Protection Board

Effective March 16, 2020, in light of COVID-19, the Board is implementing a new policy to postpone in-person hearings and reschedule to a later date. Where feasible, alternative hearing options such as written and telephone hearings will be considered to minimize disruption to hearings across the organization.

In addition the office is not open and staff are working remotely. Staff can be contacted via telephone, fax or email.

The Normal Farm Practices Protection Board was established by the Farming and Food Production Protection Act, 1998, to resolve disputes regarding agricultural operations and to determine what constitutes a normal farm practice. In performing that function, the board seeks to achieve the stated goal of the legislature in balancing the needs of the agricultural community with provincial health, safety and environmental concerns.
