The province is looking for public input on their proposed changes to the Agricultural Crown Lands Leases and Permits Regulation.

Agriculture Minister Derek Johnson says agricultural crown lands are used by approximately 1,750 forage leaseholders on 10,750 leased land parcels, primarily for grazing and haying, supporting nearly 90,000 cattle for the grazing season.

In particular, many Indigenous Peoples use these lands for traditional purposes and to exercise treaty rights."
