The Agricultural Service Board Act provides:

  • for the establishment and operation of Agricultural Service Boards throughout the province of Alberta
  • a province-wide infrastructure for the delivery of weed control, disease and pest management, as well as soil and water conservation programs and services
  • financial incentives and technical assistance to enable the administration and enforcement acts and the implementation of agricultural polices at the municipal level

Membership

  • Three Councillors
  • Four farm members
  • Of the four farm members appointed, two members must reside west of Highway #2, and two east of Highway #2.

Term/Expiry

  • Appointments are for three-year terms and members may serve for a maximum of two consecutive terms.

Meetings

  • The Agricultural Service Board typically meets five times per year as determined by Council. Meetings are open to the public. The agenda is available upon request, seven days in advance of the meeting.
