Event Description

If you're a land use planner, policy maker, farmer or farm organization representative, lender, farm financial advisor or rural realtor, you don’t want to miss Exploring Rural Land Use: Issues, institutions and change - a one-day conference that brings together a broad spectrum of stakeholders to discuss crucial issues about rural land use. In addition to a unique networking opportunity, the conference will provide:

  • An examination of key trends and issues regarding farmland in Ontario
  • A discussion about the institutions and organizations that influence the use of land
  • A forum to learn more about First Nations land use issues
  • A closer look at ongoing property rights in Canada and the United States


The event features keynote speaker Chief Robert Louie of the Westbank First Nation and Chairman of the First Nations Land Advisory Board. His presentation will focus on the First Nations Land Management Act - a framework agreement that enables First Nations to opt out of the land-related sections of the Indian Act and develop their own land code.
