Share Your Experiences and Ideas for the Next Agricultural Policy Framework

Federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) governments are working together to develop the next agricultural policy framework. We want your feedback to help shape the direction of future policy and programs for the agriculture and agri-food sector. Tell us what you would like to see in the next framework.

How the consultation will work

Online consultation will be held in 2 phases.

Phase 1 (May 9 – July 31, 2016) (now closed)

This first questionnaire was designed to gather feedback on Growing Forward 2 (GF2). FPT governments are working in partnership to develop the next framework and were seeking feedback to better understand where GF2 is working well, and where challenges could be addressed.

Comments received during in-person and online consultation during Phase 1 are summarized in Results of Consultations on the Development of the Next Agricultural Policy Framework.

Phase 2 (July 22 – November 30, 2016) (now closed)

Through this second questionnaire we are asking for your feedback on the Calgary Statement. The Calgary Statement was released by Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers of Agriculture on July 22, 2016. It outlines the key priority areas that will guide the development of the next agricultural policy framework.

We will summarize feedback received and post a report on this website in 2017.
