Guideline for CFO Enforcement and Compliance Response to COVID-19 - updated
The Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB) has developed this enforcement and compliance guideline in recognition of the extraordinary circumstances facing confined feeding operations (CFOs) in Alberta due to COVID-19. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak to be a pandemic. Alberta then also declared a public health emergency. The NRCB is issuing this guideline in an attempt to balance the protection of our natural resources against the challenges the livestock industry may experience.
While the NRCB has closed its offices in response to COVID-19, all employees are working remotely and can be contacted via their regular email or phone numbers that are listed on the NRCB website. Alternatively, requests can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call an NRCB regional office (Lethbridge 403-381-5166, Morinville 780-939-1212, or Red Deer 403-340-5241) and leave a voice message.
