Chilliwack Agricultural Land Use Inventory

To support the long-term viability of the farming industry, the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries, plus the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC are working together to complete an Agricultural Land Use Inventory (ALUI) for the City of Chilliwack. The project will update information gathered in 2012 and provide insight into changes in farmland use.

BC Ministry of Agriculture staff will be navigating public roads to observe farmland from within or beside the vehicle using binoculars. Data will be collected on crops, irrigation, livestock, and other land uses with the Agricultural Land Reserve and properties where farming is observed.

Watch for a grey Dodge Durango or other vehicle with B.C. government decals within the City of Chilliwack between July 7 and September 17, 2021.

Visit the Province's website to learn more, or read the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries' press release.
