In response to Sunday’s federal election announcement, the Grain Growers of Canada have created a video demonstrating the priorities for the grain sector as Canadians bakers consider their livelihood and the future of their main ingredient.

“This video highlights the support we need to unlock Canada’s limitless potential for agriculture,” explained GGC chair Andre Harpe in a statement. “All we need is a willing partner from our next federal government – whoever that may be.”

The video discusses areas such as business risk management, research funding, and breaking down barriers to trade. Both the video and a platform priorities document provide legislators and bureaucrats with practical and achievable solutions for agriculture as the country aims to recover in the post-pandemic economy.

Canada’s agriculture and agri-food industry is a key driver of Canada’s economy. It contributes over $142 billion (6.7%) to Canada’s GDP annually and employs 2.3 million people.
