Alberta Canola Director Nomination Results

November 1, 2018

(Edmonton, Alberta), November 1, 2018 – 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 elected by acclamation. The nomination deadline was October 31, 2018.

Wayne Schneider from Nisku will replace outgoing director Renn Breitkreuz from Onoway in Region 6.

Denis Guindon from Falher will serve a second term as director in Region 3, and Kevin Serfas from Turin will serve a second term as director for Region 9.

Region 12 received no nominations and therefore an election for director will occur at the Annual General Meeting during FarmTech on January 29, 2019.

Directors may serve two consecutive three-year terms on the Board of Alberta Canola.

New directors begin their terms immediately following the Annual General Meeting.
