Grower Engagement Meetings
Alberta Canola is hosting four Grower Engagement Meetings across Alberta during November & December 2021.
These events are scheduled to be in-person events at the following locations:
The four Grower Engagement Meetings will look different than the 12 regional meetings traditionally hosted by Alberta Canola.
These meetings will provide growers with an improved opportunity to gain insight into the activities of Alberta Canola and to provide feedback directly to their elected farmer directors. This year’s events will take a deeper dive into Alberta Canola funded research and look into the most active policy files for canola farmers.
- Lethbridge – November 17
- Nisku – November 23
- Red Deer – December 7
- Grande Prairie – December 14

Farmers in Alberta that have sold canola and paid a service charge on canola to Alberta Canola since August 1, 2019 are eligible canola growers and can register to vote.
Eligible canola growers can be individuals or represent a corporation, partnership, or organization.
In order to ensure the integrity of the voting procedure, growers will need to register to vote. This will allow Alberta Canola to verify eligible voters, and therefore enable our third-party voting provider to provide growers with a unique access code to allow them to vote.
Voter registration closes January 12, 2022.
Fields of Home Animation
The graphic novels, Fields of Home & L’Or dans les champs (French version), that have a basic introduction to the history of canola are now fully animated. The part fiction, part canola fact story leads young readers through a time travel adventure.
The Fields of Home animations and graphic novels align with grade 4 and grade 5 English Language Arts and Social Studies curricular outcomes in Alberta. The English versions are also supported by a teacher’s guide, Fields of Home StoryScape.
