Declaration of Agricultural Disaster

Vulcan County declared a Municipal Agricultural Disaster on July 21, 2021

Declaring a municipal agricultural disaster can bring awareness to a developing situation, inform residents, industry and provincial and federal governments and enable collaboration with impacted producer groups.  Municipal declarations do not automatically trigger access to increased funding programs, provincially or federally.  If an agricultural disaster is declared over a vast area of the Province of Alberta it will hopefully enable the Federal and Provincial governments to officially declare a disaster which may hopefully provide some sort of support either through financial or some type of drought assistance.
