Whether it’s inside or outside the classroom, Alberta Canola’s mandate is to promote canola provincially and nationally, and to educate the public on its benefits. Our goal is to increase Canadian demand for canola through the National Canola Marketing Program (NCMP), seek advantageous program sponsorships, and connect with educators and students through our educational website, social media, and accessible classroom resources.

The National Canola Marketing Program (NCMP) was established to promote market development activities as outlined by our respective provincial acts and to make canola knowledge, use, and support a near-universal fact.

Funded by Alberta Canola, SaskCanola, and the Manitoba Canola Growers, the program operates under a steering committee. NCMP strives to build a positive reputation for canola, shifting the Canadian mindset from apathy to love for this essential crop.

Learn Canola is Alberta Canola’s educational resource powerhouse that gives the public access to canola basics, statistics, health, cooking, the environment, careers, and insights into the agricultural industry.

This newly designed, intuitive, resource-rich website offers anyone the chance to explore books, learning resources and links to a wide range of topics relating to canola, and facts on sustainable canola farming, cooking, and canola byproducts.
