Environmental Farm Plans

Print Version

Mountain View County is committed to helping you complete an Alberta Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) a process that helps you identify and address environmental risks and opportunities in your operation. The EFP will play a key part in:

  • Safeguarding your local environment
  • Building credibility for your operation with financial institutions and the community at large
  • Sustaining the health and future of the County's agriculture industry

The EFP program provides you with a voluntary, confidential self-assessment process to evaluate the environmental risks and strengths of your operation and develop a plan to address those risks and strengths.

  • Learn more about how agricultural practices affect the environment,
  • Learn more about management options that protect soil, water, air and habitat quality
  • Identify what you are already doing well and where improvements can be made

EFP's do require updating. To be eligible for cost-share funding your EFP must be dated within the last 10 years. You can update your EFP online by visiting the website below.
