The Grower Engagement & Extension Committee is committed to providing resources to help Alberta’s canola growers with producing and marketing their canola along with information that will help their farm operations succeed.
Engagement at Alberta Canola means actively seeking feedback and input from growers. The series of annual Grower Engagement Meetings held each November & December and the Alberta Canola Conference & Research Symposium are key opportunities for growers to directly engage with the directors and staff.
The Grower Engagement & Extension Committee also ensures that all canola growers in Alberta are informed of Alberta Canola’s activities, financial health, governing regulations and the opportunities that exist for eligible producers to actively participate in the commission including director nominations, director elections, voting on resolutions at the Annual General Meeting, or becoming a regional director.
