Research Results

The Alberta Canola Producers Commission has invested millions of dollars into agronomic research.  The results from research are carefully integrated into all delivery platforms including presentations by the Canola Council’s agronomy specialists and integrated into:

Canola Research HubCanola Watch, Canola Digest, and the Canola Encyclopedia.

The Canola Council of Canada coordinates many of the research projects that the Alberta Canola Producers Commission and our partners collaboratively fund.

Canola Research Hub

Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Credit

Canola growers in Alberta that do not request a refund of their check off from the Alberta Canola Producers Commission qualify for a tax credit each year.

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credit allows canola growers to claim the tax credit for that portion of the check off paid that was used to fund qualifying research.
