The Government of Canada set a target to reduce fertilizer-related emissions, which led to consultations with the sector to gather feedback on how best to support farmers and producers through voluntary measures moving forward. Over 2,000 submissions were received through the online consultation, technical workshops and town hall meetings between March and October 2022. Farmers, producers, industry associations, provinces and territories, scientists and environmental organizations provided their input. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada analyzed the valuable feedback, and published the Fertilizer Emissions Reduction Target Consultation What We Heard Report. A Fertilizer Working Group is being formed under the Sustainable Agriculture Strategy Advisory Committee.
