Representing West Coast farmers

The West Coast executive has responded to the geographic challenges of being long and narrow by regularly holding provincial meetings in outlying towns across the region. Four times a year it gets together to work through local and national issues from a farmer's perspective.

The province keeps a keen eye on district and regional council activities and on the local advocacy of environmental groups. West Coast is also keen to have fun and holds at least one social weekend a year.
