Alberta Canola Announces Director Election Results

November 17, 2020

The call for nominations for farmers to serve on the Board of Directors of the Alberta Canola Producers Commission resulted in three canola producers being re-elected by acclamation.

Andre Harpe from Valhalla Centre in Region 2, Ian Chitwood from Airdrie in Region 8, and Roger Chevraux from Killam for Region 11 will all serve a second term as director.

Region 5 received no nominations and therefore a new nomination period for a Region 5 director is now open until January 12, 2021. An election will occur during Alberta Canola’s Annual General Meeting on January 26, 2021.
