Efforts to bring agricultural data online could prove challenging for rural areas.

The Agricultural Land Commission is considering implementing an online application tracking system to digitally capture historic information and link the information to GIS mapping. The ALC is also looking at a number of fee increases.

“This is all fine and dandy but over in Area D and Area E (Cherryville) we don’t have high speed internet so it makes it very difficult,” said Rick Fairbairn, rural Lumby director.

A survey is being conducted among B.C. communities on the proposed changes.
