Ottawa Names New CGC Chief Commissioner

The federal government has appointed David Hunt as the new Chief Commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC). 

Hunt, who was officially named to the post on Tuesday, replaces the outgoing Doug Corney, whose four-year term was extended to the end of this month while the search for his successor continued. Hunt's four-year term as chief commissioner of the CGC will officially begin May 13. 

Hunt is a long-term Manitoba civil servant, having joined that province’s agriculture department in 2007. He held several positions, including leadership roles with Veterinary Diagnostic Services and the Livestock Industry Branch, before accepting the position of Assistant Deputy Minister for the Corporate Services and Innovation Division. Most recently, Hunt served as Assistant Deputy Minister within Manitoba's Department of Environment and Climate Change. 

The CGC regulates grain handling in Canada and establishes and maintains science-based standards of quality for Canadian grain. Its research, programs and services help support Canada's reputation as a consistent and reliable source of high-quality grain.
