Alberta Canola directors work alongside fellow farmers to represent growers in their region and collaborate with decision makers from across the agricultural spectrum to drive the industry forward. 

The Board of Directors meets quarterly and is guided in decision making by five committees:

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

Who can become a director? 

Anyone who has paid a service charge on canola to Alberta Canola since August 1, 2021, is an eligible producer and can stand as a director. Eligible producers can be individuals or represent a corporation, partnership, or organization.  

To be nominated, eligible producers must grow canola within the defined region but do not have to reside within it.
