The Canada-Ontario Land Management Assistance Program (LMAP) was
signed by the Federal and Provincial Ministers of Agriculture on March 25,
1991. This federally funded Program was developed to encourage farmers to
implement environmentally sound management practices on their land. The
allocation for Ontario was $15.242 million for the period between April
1, 1992 and March 31, 1994.
With a few exceptions, all LMAP programs and projects were delivered
via contribution agreements with appropriate third party agents.
To facilitate the adoption of effective resource management and
environmental sustainable farming practices as a key to increasing the
long-term financial returns to producers of grains and oilseeds and edible
horticultural crops, sustainability of agriculture's natural resource
base and competitiveness of the Ontario agri-food sector.
Federal LMAP programs include:
an extension of the NSCP Permanent Cover Program,
a High Crop Residue Program,
a Rural Conservation Clubs Program, and
further funding of the Best Management Practices Manuals.
