Research program

The aim of this research program is to support agricultural land use planning in Canada in order to better protect farmland for food production.

A key focus of the research program is to examine the state of agricultural land use planning.  We use a new method of evaluation to measure the quality–or strength–of legislative frameworks at all levels of government.
