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.
