Permits and regulations for existing operations

Description

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. On October 1, 2006, amendments to the regulations that support AOPA came into effect. The amendments provide further clarity to the original intent of the legislation, address permitting issues and update the standards for manure storage. This publication lists some frequently asked questions.
