Agricultural Operation Practices Act

Description

The Agricultural Operation Practices Act (AOPA) and its associated regulations apply to all agricultural operations in Alberta. The purpose of the Act is to ensure that the province’s livestock industry can grow to meet the opportunities presented by local and world markets in an environmentally sustainable manner. Part one of the Act defines how nuisance issues such as odour, dust, noise and smoke resulting from agricultural activities are addressed. Part two of the Act sets the permitting process for the construction or expansion of confined feeding operations, the compliance process, and offences related to, and penalties for contravening, the Act. The Act outlines how affected parties and neighbours are consulted in the approval and review processes. The Natural Resources Conservation Board is responsible for delivering AOPA, permitting of confined feeding operations, and addressing complaints regarding the management of manure on agricultural operations in Alberta.
