The Alberta government has selected members for technical
working groups that will develop recommendations for the new
Enhanced Protection for Farm and Ranch Workers Act,
formerly known as Bill 6. Each group consists of 12 members, and
includes farmers, ranchers, researchers and other industry experts.
The groups will discuss employment standards, occupational health
and safety, and labour relations, with the ultimate goal of
drafting regulations in these key areas. Details of the groups are
available online at http://www.alberta.ca/farm-and-ranch-consultations.cfm.
The groups are to begin their work in mid-June, but the
government of Alberta has not indicated a strict timeline for their
progress. The government expects to receive the working groups'
recommendations by the end of the year, and is hopeful that
regulations will be implemented by next spring. However, the
government has also made it clear that the working groups will be
granted more time if deemed necessary.
Throughout the discussions, producers who are members of
agricultural commissions and marketing boards will be permitted to
provide their input. As regulation drafts are put forward, the
public will also be given the opportunity to offer feedback.
