In January 2002, the province established a permit process for confined feeding operations (CFOs) and set province-wide manure management standards under the Agricultural Operation Practices Act (AOPA). The requirements under AOPA are aimed at supporting the sustainable growth of the livestock industry and protecting the environment.
