Alberta Canola is pleased to welcome a new Director to the Board. Charles Simoneau from Guy, Alberta was elected to represent Alberta Canola’s region 3. 

 The Board of Alberta Canola would like to thank outgoing directors, Kevin Serfas – Region 9, Denis Guindon – Region 3 and Holly White – Region 12, for all the hard work they have done on behalf of Alberta’s canola farmers. 

 “I would like to thank Kevin, Holly and Denis for the time and effort they put into Alberta Canola.  Representing canola growers and bringing the different needs and conditions of canola growers to the Board table allowed us to make far better decisions,” said Roger Chevraux.  “The Board is truly grateful for their input and advice.”
