Agriculture has played a critical and significant role in the history, and the growth and development of the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako (RDBN). Agriculture continues to contribute significantly to the economy and character of our region. Given this significance, the Board of the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako has initiated the development of an agricultural plan to ensure that the RDBN is doing all that it can to protect and enhance the viability and vitality of agriculture in the region.
The agricultural plan will identify opportunities and constraints that agricultural producers face, and identify the practical actions that can be taken to best capitalize on the opportunities and mitigate or remove the constraints. The Agriculture Plan will be developed through a comprehensive consultation process guided by a knowledgeable working group comprised of Regional District staff, Regional District Board members, and stakeholder representatives who have experience and expertise in agriculture in the RDBN.
