ACFA contributes to stakeholder letter to Premier about the implementation of MELT for farms

ACFA, along with many other crop and livestock boards and commissions, recently submitted a letter to Premier Kenney outlining concerns with the implementation of Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) for farms.

The collaborating organizations are asking Premier Kenney and the Government of Alberta to find solutions to ensure voluntary compliance.

Our organizations are willing to engage with the Government of Alberta to find workable solutions to achieve high voluntary compliance.

These asks include:

–  Adjusting the MELT deadlines for farmers and farm workers because of the significant disruption on timelines caused by the pandemic.

– Treat agriculture extension drivers who completed their preMELT Class 1 licence before the lockdown the same as Transition drivers. Grant these extension drivers the same 2-year probation period and grandfather the Class 1 licence to those with a clean driving record.

– Reduce the cost barrier for the Class 1 MELT program with alternative approaches

These issues and the complete letter can be found here:
