Alberta Canola Grower Engagement Meetings 2023

Alberta Canola is hosting four Grower Engagement Meetings across Alberta during November and December 2023.

These meetings offer canola growers the opportunity to engage with Alberta Canola directors and staff to gain a deeper understanding of Alberta Canola’s activities, programs, and partnerships.

You will hear about research investments, policy positions, advocacy initiatives, and our efforts to inform and educate consumers and educators.

Most importantly, Alberta Canola wants to hear directly from growers on our activities and to learn about any issues or opportunities that Alberta Canola needs to be working on.

Four in-person meetings are scheduled and one online broadcast.

Tuesday, November 21: High River
Thursday, November 23: Wainwright
Tuesday, December 12: Fairview
Thursday, December 14: Westlock
Tuesday, December 19: Online broadcast

Alberta Canola welcomes Will Holowaychuk as Policy Analyst

Coming from an active fifth-generation mixed family farming operation, the passion for agriculture was instilled early for Will. This passion has come full circle as we welcome Will to the Alberta Canola team as policy analyst. In this role, he will be dedicated to researching and advocating on behalf of canola producers, with the overarching goal of ensuring the long-term economic and environmental sustainability of canola production and the broader agricultural sector.

Will has a Master of Agriculture (MAg) in Agriculture and Resource Economics and a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) in Finance, both from the University of Alberta. Add to that the work experience Will has in technology, banking, and agricultural sectors, he will bring a wide range of skills and experiences to the canola team. We look forward to the contribution he will help make here at Alberta Canola on behalf of canola producers!
