Agricultural Land Use

OMAFRA has adopted policies to protect agricultural land and farm operations for the long term. Land use planning through documents such as the Greenbelt Plan, 2017; the Nutrient Management Act, 2002; the Farming and Food Production Protection Act, 1998; the Minimum Distance Separation (MDS) Document Formulae and Guidelines for Livestock Facility and Anaerobic Digester Odour Setbacks; and the Provincial Policy Statement, 2014 help ensure future planning stability in rural areas.
