The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) Program is a complimentary program that provides eligible agri-food sector producers with access to consultants (known as EFP Advisors) to assist in the completion of Environmental Farm Plans. The EFP program enhances the capacity of producers to identify opportunities to adapt and respond to emerging environmental, regenerative agriculture, and climate challenges and changing environmental conditions.
An EFP is an on-farm agri-environmental risk assessment. Its purpose is to identify potential environmental, regenerative agriculture and climate risks within a farmer and rancher’s (Producers) operations and educate them about how these risks can be mitigated.
The purpose of the EFP is to raise environmental awareness amongst farmers and ranchers and to improve or enhance their environmental stewardship practices and the sustainability of their operations.
The benefits of this program will include:
- Assist producers in completing new Environmental Farm Plans (EFPs)
- Assist producers in renewing existing Environmental Farm Plans (EFPs)
- Supporting producers to identify opportunities for funding through the Beneficial Management Practices program
