The Canola Levy
A 75 cent ($0.75) per tonne levy on Saskatchewan produced canola is collected. Under provincial government legislation, the levy must be collected by buyers at the time of sale. The buyers forward the levy to SaskCanola.
Saskatchewan canola producers should always check their grain tickets to ensure that the appropriate levy has been assessed. Canola levy is based on the province in which the crop is grown and not on the farm or business address.
Your levy may be refunded annually upon request and is based on your canola sales for the period of August 1 to July 31.
