ALUS Ontario East
Where Agriculture and Nature Meet

ALUS came to eastern Ontario in 2012. Today, Ontario East ALUS Inc. operates within the watersheds of the Raisin Region and South Nation Conservation Authorities, covering the geographic region of Eastern Ontario, between Ottawa and the Quebec border, and south-west to Maitland.

The program is overseen by a Partnership Advisory Committee (PAC) comprised of voting members (farmers) and advisory members (agency and NGO staff). Currently, there are seven local farmers, comprising the voting members of the PAC, and seven non-voting members who provide advice and guidance.

ALUS Ontario East focuses on retiring marginal, inefficient and fragile farmland, and converting it into natural areas, such as pollinator habitat, hedgerows, wetlands, buffer zones, native meadows, reforested areas and wildlife habitat, complete with nest boxes for birds, bats and bees.

To be eligible, landowners must have a valid Farm Business Registration Number, and should be comfortable serving as a spokesperson for ALUS, willing and available to host demonstration tours on their farms.
