Province Announces Online Approach To Agricultural Crown Land Lease Auctions

The Manitoba government has announced a new, modern online approach to agricultural Crown land lease auctions beginning in February.
 
“By modernizing our approach to service delivery we are better able to meet the needs and expectations of our clients,” said Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen. “The new, online auction format will ensure we can offer all Manitobans the opportunity to rent additional lands that will support their farming operations.”
 
A number of agricultural Crown land parcels will be available to rent for haying, grazing, or cropping. The official listing of agricultural Crown lands available for rent can be found at: https://resd.ca/leases_and_permits/LPproperties.aspx
 
The online auctions will be hosted by Garton’s Auction Service from Feb. 8 to 12, with further information to follow on https://gartonsauction.com/
 
Pedersen noted that allocating agricultural Crown land leases by way of a public auction is part of the modernization of the Agricultural Crown Lands Program.
 
These leases and permits are available to farmers and ranchers, to provide an additional land base on which to conduct agricultural activities.
