The Farmers’ Advocate Office
(FAO) was established by Alberta Agriculture in 1973, and today serves as an advocate for rural Albertans. The FAO addresses issues related landowner rights, disputes between farmers and other individuals, rules for the sale of farm implements, and general advocacy for the concerns of rural landowners.
The FAO released four advisories over the past year regarding the concerns of farmers with oil and gas sites on their property. These advisories address situations where an oil or gas company has not paid their annual lease or is attempting to unilaterally reduce payments. The advisories can be found here:
