Agricultural Crown Land use modernized


The Manitoba government has introduced legislation that would improve how agricultural Crown lands (ACL) and community pastures are managed, Agriculture Minister Ralph Eichler announced last week.
“We are pleased to be introducing amendments to The Crown Lands Act that will modernize the process of crown land leases,” said Eichler.
“We are also making changes that will better enable government to maintain and protect community pastures. These lands not only provide opportunities for cattle farmers, but also provide numerous environmental benefits including carbon sequestration, protecting threatened species and maintaining biodiversity.”
The Crown Lands Amendment Act would allow agricultural Crown lands to have their rent determined by a public auction and allow government designate ACL as community pastures.
