At the end of 2022, Sustain joined the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario, the National Farmers Union, Ontario Farmland Trust and the Greenbelt Foundation in producing a joint letter on the Provincial Policy Statement and A Place to Grow, and how they might be impacted by Bill 23, More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022.

The letter calls on the province to prioritize the preservation of all farmland and agricultural lands, and to use a collaborative approach to responsible, long-term land use planning.
