The Plant Protein Alliance Of Alberta Has Ended

A cut in provincial funding means the end of the Plant Protein Alliance of Alberta.
 
It was formed about 3 years ago and was expecting to get its annual grant of 250 thousand dollars from the provincial government this year. As recently as last month, the Alliance was told the money was coming. But by the end of March, they were told there was no funding coming. It had no choice but to shut down. Some of the work the Alliance did over the past three years was to help new agricultural companies grow and navigate government red tape.
 
Postmedia received an email from Alberta agriculture and Forestry saying the alliance did great work over the past few years and we thank them for their efforts. There have been ongoing cuts to the ag department for the past two years, resulting in hundreds of jobs lost as the government hands over the responsibility of ag research to the private sector.
