Agricultural Landuse

OMAFRA, in partnership with other public and private sector partners, recognizes the need to protect agricultural land for agricultural land uses, and has adopted policies which protect agricultural land and farm operations for the long term. Land use planning through documents such as the Greenbelt Act, 2005; the Guide to Agricultural Use; the Nutrient Management Act, 2002; the Farming and Food Production Protection Act, 1998; the Minimum Distance Separation formulae, 2006; and the Provincial Policy Statement, 2005 help ensure future planning stability in rural areas.
