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) and Agricultural Land Reserve Use, Subdivision and Procedure 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 agricultural land 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 Administrative Assistant and Correspondence Clerk is responsible for entering incoming correspondence into the CLIFF Correspondence Tracking System, finalizing letters for signature and providing other additional administrative functions as needed.
