Agricultural Service Board
Agriculture has solid roots in Sturgeon County. Over the next two years, the Agricultural Service Board will play an important role in informing the County’s agricultural strategy and master plan, including addressing issues facing our agricultural community along with exploring conventional and non-conventional agricultural industries as part of our agri-nomic evolution.
Serving on the Agricultural Services Board is a great way to learn more about the future of agriculture and the role of boards and committees in supporting Council decisions. Review the Agricultural Services Board Terms of Reference for more information.
