5.1. Protect agricultural land and the local agricultural system

Waterloo Region has been a long-time leader in the development and implementation of land use planning protections for prime agricultural land. This protection is a continued priority for community members, those in the agricultural industry, and municipalities, and these policies must continue to be strong. Building and maintaining close relationships between our local municipalities and organizations within our local agricultural communities is critical to ensuring we meet and exceed best practices to protect our agricultural land.
