Alberta Canola partnered with canola grower groups across Canada to ensure a more in-depth consultation around the draft document. We engaged a group of roughly 50 canola farmers from across the Prairies, which included our directors, to take a deeper dive over four, 2-hour consultation meetings. The time these farmers invested in providing this feedback is sincerely appreciated.
These meetings were important to share farmers’ concerns about the Code of Practice process and content. Based on constructive comments gathered from these 4 virtual canola sessions and the online workspace, the Canadian Canola Growers Association identified a number of recommendations that were shared with the CRSC Steering Committee.
