  1. Hello, I am very interested in the land lease program and would like to receive more information about how the program actually works? Thank you.

    I would like to compare the advantage to leasing vs. purchasing land and how the young agrarian program works for the young entrepreneurs who really want to make this a long term endeavor. I would really like to look at the long term benefits and ROI considering the over all investment etc.

    1. Hi Mike,

      Good questions! I will forward them to our Lower Mainland Land Matcher, Fai. He will reach out to you via email.

      Cheers,
      Michi
