(a) carry out its activities and govern its regulated members in a manner that protects and serves the public interest,
(b) provide direction to and regulate the practice of agrology by its regulated members,
(c) establish, maintain and enforce standards of practice, registration and continuing competence for the practice of agrology
(d) establish, maintain and enforce a code of ethics, and
(e) carry on the activities of the Institute and perform other duties and functions by the exercise of the powers conferred by this Act.
THE PRACTICE OF AGROLOGY
The Profession of Agrology focuses on science as it applies directly or indirectly to the management of biophysical resources, food production systems, food security and safety, and environmental quality. The practice of agrology in Alberta encompasses four Agrology sectors: Life Sciences, Environment, Agriculture and Food with 43 practice areas.
The public has access to a fair and responsive complaint process to address incompetent or unethical practice by registered agrology professionals.
