We hope that you are doing well and managing all of the weather-related challenges this summer has presented us so far. This update is going to be a short one as we are still waiting on a response from AAFC before moving forward with industry engagement and work planning.
IAF and BCAC were able to submit an application to the Agricultural Climate Solutions Program (Phase 1) before the June 15 deadline and we were so happy with the interest shown in the lead up to our submission. We ended up including 14 letters of support with our application and an additional 13 notions of endorsement from industry associations.
We will be sure to share the news once we receive AAFC’s decision on our application and look forward to working closely with those interested in climate change mitigation work on BC farms.
