The Honourable Rachel Notley
Premier of Alberta
307 Legislature Building
10800 - 97 Avenue
Edmonton, Alberta T5K 2B6

An open letter to the Honourable R. Notley and Members of the Cabinet,

The Alberta Farm Fresh Producers Association (AFFPA) is a non-profit organization representing a collective of direct-marketing growers and farmers across Alberta. Our membership is made up of mainly small- and medium-sized farms. These are farms that employ seasonal labour in the busy seasons, and contribute substantially to building their local communities.

Our membership and board of directors are vehemently opposed to the implementation of Bill 6 “Enhanced Protection for Farm and Ranch Workers Act”, as currently written. The amendments implemented during the second reading of the bill are insufficient to protect the majority of our members from dire consequences, should this bill pass. Many members have expressed serious concerns, including the likelihood that this bill would render their operations untenable. Prior to proceeding with the legislative process, we implore the Notley government to conduct extensive consultation with farmers, growers, ranchers and other stakeholders in the agricultural sector who will be directly affected by this legislation. The details of the bill need to be developed in conjunction with the farming community and not imposed upon us without collaboration.

Clarification and consultation around the specifics of Bill 6 are crucial, and the amendments that your government has announced are not adequate to deal with the deficiencies in the proposed legislation.

We are asking that the Government of Alberta suspend all action on Bill 6. Work with us and other agricultural organizations to find solutions that enhance farm safety and still ensure that farmers can maintain their livelihoods.

Finally, your government published a list of organizations whom you claim to have consulted with during the development stages of Bill 6; AFFPA is on this list. While two board members did attend a “Farm Safety” meeting in March 2015, no details of Bill 6 were revealed, and no requests for input from our association were made. This is not a consultation and we are disappointed to see this false information published.

Jered Serben, President
