Four Innovative Approaches
This document focuses on the topic of farmland access and land management in British Columbia. We are jointly committed to ensuring that the next generation of farmers in BC have access to land to develop viable farm operations, and that elder generations of farmers are able to leave a legacy of fertile land. We acknowledge that many agricultural lands across the province are located on the traditional territories of Indigenous Peoples. We acknowledge the colonial history of agricultural land policies, and strive to maintain an open dialogue with Indigenous communities to ensure our work respects and supports Indigenous land rights and food systems.
