Economic Sustainability

We’re proud to be part of a strong, dynamic and diverse economy that helps sustain jobs, encourage growth and bring new and valuable goods to market. 

While we’re a critical part of the agriculture and food industry, we play an important role in the local and national economy by employing 400 skilled people and providing a valuable service to farms, feedlots, restaurants, butcher shops, supermarkets and processors.

Acting as a critical link to Canadian agricultural producers and export markets, we help reduce the cost of food and food production.

The canola industry exports 2.5 million tonnes of Canadian canola oil per year.
