Board of Directors
An eight member Board of Directors oversees SaskCanola. They are producers who strongly believe in the potential that canola holds on the world stage.
The Board along with staff is responsible for the allocation of canola levy funds amongst four key priorities established by the organization's strategic plan in 2015:
- Producer Engagement
- Canola Promotion
The Board reports annually to producers on their stewardship of SaskCanola at the Annual General Meeting held every January.
To accomplish all of this, SaskCanola Directors attend five board meetings per year, participate on Board committees, and attend industry and producer meetings to ensure canola producer's interests are heard. The Directors commit approximately 40 days per year of their time to SaskCanola to ultimately benefit the producers of Saskatchewan.
