 Land for Agriculture

The Agriculture and Lands Branch advertises land for agriculture purposes through the Request for Proposals (RFP) process. This land includes but is not limited to:

  • Land within Agricultural Areas of Interest;
  • Agriculture land returned to the Crown;
  • Farmland Development Projects; and,
  • Land Consolidation Properties.

Through the Request for Proposals process, the Branch seeks candidates to lease and utilize land. Proposals are solicited from existing commercial farmers, part-time commercial farmers or new farmers who are in need of land to operate and develop the property as an Agricultural Crown Land Lease.

Interested individuals or groups can make application and outline their development proposals within the forms provided. Each proposal will be evaluated by the selection committee (Eastern or Western). The following criteria are used in evaluating the most suitable farm plan:

  • Commercial viability;
  • Applicant's need for additional land;
  • Degree to which the additional land will improve the viability of the farm land;
  • Management and use of the applicant's existing land base, if applicable;
  • Markets/quotas available to the farm;
  • Proximity of the land to the applicant's farm, if applicable; and
  • Proposed management and use of additional land.

The Selection Committee will recommend the candidate with the most suitable farm plan who can demonstrate the best agricultural use of the land.
