The Grazing Lease Stewardship Code of Practice consolidates Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) requirements into one document. It outlines the responsibilities of leaseholders, including costs.

Goal of the code

The code promotes sustainable use of public grazing land for the long-term benefit of:

  • leaseholders
  • the environment
  • industry
  • recreational users
  • all Albertans

Signing the code

The code was signed on December 17, 2007 by Hon. Ted Morton, Minister of Sustainable Resource Development. It was also signed by representatives of the following:

  • Alberta Beef Producers
  • Alberta Grazing Leaseholders Association
  • Western Stock Growers Association

Signing the document with cattle industry stakeholders creates a positive message about leaseholder’s ongoing partnership. AEP continues to review the code of practice based on feedback we collect from stakeholders.
