An independent administrative tribunal, the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) is the provincial body responsible for administering the provincial Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), governed by the Agricultural Land Commission Act (ALCA), Agricultural Land Reserve General Regulation and Agricultural Land Reserve Use Regulation. The Commission is hosted by a Ministry of the provincial government; however, the work of the ALC is carried out by an independent government-appointed Chair and board of directors who report directly to the legislature via the host Minister. The work of the Commission is supported by a team of technical and professional staff.
The mandate is set out in Section 6 of the ALCA and guides all work carried out by the Commission and staff. The work of the ALC to preserve the agricultural land reserve and encourage farming is focused on strategic land use policy, engagement in land use planning and compliance and enforcement, in addition to land use application review and adjudication.
The Soil Resource Officer provides the ALC with senior technical advisory services related to management of fill and resource extraction land use applications, Notices of Intent (NOI) and contravention orders related to unauthorized fill deposition as per ALC legislation, bylaws and policies.
