Alberta EFP is responsible for the Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) program across the province. We work with Alberta producers and the industry groups that represent them to create awareness of the designation and its benefits, and to encourage producers to complete the EFP process.

The EFP program began in 2003 and has been delivered by the Agricultural Research and Extension Council of Alberta (ARECA) since 2013. Our work includes:

  • Creating awareness and interest through a variety of marketing communications initiatives
  • Providing information about the program to a wide variety of audiences
  • Developing and updating materials such as the EFP workbook, website and how-to videos
  • Linking new registrants with one of our 50+ EFP technicians across the province for individual coaching and advice
  • Encouraging agricultural education programs to include EFP education and experience in their curriculum
  • Creating and strengthening partnerships with the ag industry and all three orders of government
  • Working with the ag industry and our EFP counterparts across Canada to develop national standards that will meet or surpass international standards

Alberta EFP’s work is guided by a Stakeholder Advisory Committee, delivered by regional ag reps, and supported by municipal, provincial and federal government.
