The aim of this Act is to protect "agricultural land reserves", as established under the Agricultural Land Commission Act. It is based upon a basic prohibition to either remove soil or bring any material onto agricultural land reserves, unless accompanied by a local authority permit, or by the written approval of the Provincial Agricultural Land Commission (sect. 2). The remaining sections deal with application fees (sect. 4); permits (sect. 5); suspension and cancellation of permits (sect. 6); enforcement (sects. 8 and 9); offences (sect. 10); regulations (sect. 11).

Repealed by: Agricultural Land Commission Act ([SBC 2002] Chapter 36). (2002-05-30)
