This action plan for the Golden Horseshoe provides a blueprint for supporting and growing a thriving, integrated food and farming sector in the Golden Horseshoe. It responds to the common challenges and opportunities the area shares. These challenges and opportunities arise from the large concentration of population, growth pressures, conflict between agricultural and urban land uses, myriad of regulations and overlapping agencies, and cluster of food and farming enterprises located within it. The plan focuses on enhancing competitiveness, promoting sustainability and removing barriers that stand in the way of achieving these goals.
In Niagara, this plan is being enacted by the Agricultural Policy & Action Committee.
