Welcome to SaskCanola
SaskCanola (Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission) is a producer led organization, established in 1991 and supported by some 23,000 levy-paying Saskatchewan canola producers.
Vision: Growing producer prosperity.
Mission: To provide value to canola producers through advocacy, research, & market development.
An eight member Board of Directors oversees SaskCanola. They are producers who strongly believe in the potential that canola holds on the world stage.
A 75 cent ($0.75) per tonne levy on Saskatchewan produced canola is collected by buyers at the time of sale and forwarded to SaskCanola. The levy is refundable upon request by the producer.
Levy Dollars at Work for You
The levy of 75 cents per tonne sent to SaskCanola, and administered by the producer-led board of directors, helps your canola business:
- further explore and secure canola markets for producers nationally and internationally;
- continue agronomic success, by working on important research that benefits producer profitability;
- acquire the latest crop and farm business information through communications programs and services.
