Hello,

The Strategic Policy and Evaluation Division at the Department of Agriculture and Land is administering this survey to consult with the public on the development of agriculture policy in Prince Edward Island. The survey aims to be inclusive of a broad range of diverse perspectives about agriculture in the province. The survey is anticipated to close on July 1, 2021.

Purpose and background: We would like to know what you believe should be priorities for agriculture development in the province. The results of this survey will be used to develop the next cost-shared policy and program framework between Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the PEI Department of Agriculture and Land. The current cost-shared Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP) will end on March 31, 2023. The NPF is anticipated to launch on April 1 2023.

How survey results will be used: The survey results will be used as one line of evidence to develop policies and programs in the future. Other lines of evidence include program evaluations, consultations with industry groups, and peer-reviewed literature on best practices for agriculture development.  The results of this survey will be included in a “What We’ve Heard” report and will be posted on the Department’s website.
