Project Description:

The Capital Regional District (CRD) requires a qualified consultant or consulting team to identify and assess options for increasing food production by enhancing access to farmland as a community asset for the public good.


Deliver a feasibility study that will help the CRD Board determine whether to proceed with a Regional Food and Farmland Trust including:

a. Identify alternative approaches to a Regional Food and Farmland Trust (RFFLT)

b. Examine and evaluate whether a RFFLT could, in the Capital Regional District, cost-effectively and in a timely manner (approx. 5 years) increase access to publically owned farmland (addressing tenure and affordability) in the region and maintain/enhance farmland productivity (subject to the availability, condition and suitability of farmland).

c. Compare any cost-effective and timely approaches identified in #1 and #2 above and identify key differences in both benefits and costs.

d. Identify potential operating models for all cost-effective and timely approaches and identify costs and benefits associated with each operating model.

e. Recommend an approach and operating model and identify the expertise, capacity, partnerships, funding and timeline required to implement (business case).
