The Alberta Canola Producers Commission is seeking four canola growers to serve as directors on the board of directors for a 3-year term.

This year, directors are needed in regions 2, 5, 8, 11.

Alberta Canola divides Alberta into 12 regions, with each region electing a producer director to represent the canola growers within that region. Visit albertacanola.com/regions for a map and information on the regions.

The Board of Directors meets quarterly and is guided in decision making by five committees comprised of board members and staff.

The committees are:

  • Research
  • Governance and Finance
  • Grower Relations and Extension
  • Government and Industry Affairs
  • Public Engagement & Promotion

For full descriptions and committee roles please visit: albertacanola.com/committees

Can I become an Alberta Canola Director?

Do you grow canola in Alberta? Then yes!

Any producer who has paid a service charge on canola sold since August 1, 2018 can stand for election as a Director. An eligible producer can be an individual, corporation, partnership, or organization and must produce canola within the defined region in order to be nominated. A producer does not have to reside within the region.

What are the responsibilities of a Director?

  • Represent the canola farmers in your region on the Board, making informed decisions on issues based in research, finance, policy, extension, and market development.
  • Attend 4 board meetings per year. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a diversity of valuable meetings, courses, conferences, and events.

Nominations for the position of Director must be filed in writing at the Alberta Canola office on or before 4:00 pm on October 30, 2020.
