DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) has extended the deadline to participate in its on-line survey for Peace Region Farmers.

The Survey is to help the PRRD to get clarity on the state of the Agriculture Industry in the Peace by asking farmers directly. The deadline to participate is December 31st, 2019.

The PRRD is asking Peace Region Farmers to complete a short survey about how the poor weather in 2019 has affected producers and businesses.

At a recent Peace River Regional District meeting, Board Directors made the decision to call a state of emergency for agriculture.

Since the weather is making it difficult for farmers to harvest their crops, Director for Electoral Area B, Karen Goodings, made the recommendation to the Board that advocates for more support for farmers affected by the weather.
