Manitoba canola farmers, cast your vote

The voice of farmers is an important influence in developing decisions and policies that will support progressive, profitable and forward-thinking canola production. As a farmer funded and directed association, Manitoba Canola Growers has a board of directors who are elected and empowered to make decisions that will benefit farmers and positively affect the future of canola in this province.

Every two years, the association holds an election where members elect four directors, each serving a four-year term.

This year there are five candidates vying for four director positions.

  • Ballots were mailed out to all members mid-December.
  • Instructions can be found on your ballot to vote digitally or by mail.
  • Deadline to vote is January 15, 2022

Successful candidates will be your board representation and have the unique opportunity of representing canola farmers in Manitoba.

Any questions regarding voting can be directed to the Returning Officer for the 2021 elections, Rej Vermette with Avenue 4 Communications. Email

Running are:




Pam Bailey
Dacotah, Manitoba





Jackie Dudgeon
