New website highlights Team Alberta policy positions

October 7, 2019

Team Alberta launched a website today that showcases its important role in policy advocacy on behalf of Alberta’s crop farmers.

Team Alberta, which represents approximately 20,000 farmer members of four Alberta crop commissions, advances Alberta’s crop sector through meetings and direct correspondence with government officials and elected representatives.

The new website, teamalbertacrops.com, allows stakeholders including farmers, elected officials and government staff to quickly locate Team Alberta positions on important topics facing Alberta’s farmers and provides a point of contact.

Policy positions on the website to date include efforts to improve market access, reduce regulatory hurdles, increase competitiveness through innovation, as well as advocate for farmers in the areas of sustainability, climate change mitigation and farmers’ role in the carbon cycle.
