FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – B.C. Hydro is looking for area agriculture producers to sit on a board that will manage the Site C Agricultural Mitigation and Compensation Plan.

The $20 million fund will support agricultural production and agrifoods initiatives in the B.C. Peace.

Implementation of the fund will begin this year, starting with the formation of a 10-member funding board comprised of six appointees of regional agricultural associations or the Peace River Regional District, three members-at-large who are agricultural producers living in the Peace Region and one member who is a Peace River Valley agricultural producer.

The regional decision-making board will be responsible for disbursement of the fund. Members are expected to be selected in the spring.
