ABOUT THE CLIENT
Alberta Agriculture and Forestry is a government of Alberta ministry that is responsible for the policies, legislation, regulations and services for Alberta’s agriculture, food and forest sectors.
About the Project
Alberta Agriculture and Forestry’s Wildfire Management Branch sought public and stakeholder input on proposed amendments to the Forest and Prairie Protection Act and associated regulations.
An online survey was open for feedback to all Albertans. The survey was distributed to key stakeholders, including industry representatives, municipalities, Indigenous communities, hunter and trapper associations and nonprofit groups. The general public was informed through Wildfire Alberta and Alberta Government Public Consultation websites.
Respondents were asked to state their level of support with the amendments for three main areas: Fines, Operational Amendments and Administrative Amendments. Respondents were given the option to provide comments to substantiate their answers.
Pivotal Research analyzed the results and delivered a detailed report to the Ministry.
