Who We Are
The Canada Grains Council is the national organization representing the interests of the Canadian grain, oilseed, pulse and special crop sectors. Our members represent the entire value chain, including Canadian growers, seed and life science companies, commodity associations, grain companies and public research institutions.
Formed in 1969 to co-ordinate efforts to increase the sale and use of Canadian grain in domestic and world markets, the Council has become the leading recognized forum of the grain industry, in Canada and around the world.
