canadian canola growers association

At the Canadian Canola Growers Association (CCGA), our vision is “helping farmers succeed”​ and our mission is “to influence national and international issues, programs and policies to enhance the success of Canadian canola farmers”. In 1984, canola producers from Western Canada joined together to form a national canola producer association to provide canola farmers with access to cash advances under the Advance Payments Program operated by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.  Over 30 years later, CCGA has expanded its cash advance administrator portfolio to include 45 commodities, including all major field crops and livestock types. Here is more information on CCGA cash advances. In addition, CCGA advocates for grower interests through direct representation to parliamentarians, legislators, and government officials. Our Director of Government Relations works on advocacy out of our office in Ottawa.​​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​As the 2016 crop starts to come off fields across Western Canada, many farmers have transportation at the forefront of their minds. Over the last crop year, grain moved well along major corridors. Will that success carry into the fall, though? The railways have stated publicly that they’re committed to working with shippers to move a large harvest – but fundamentally, the relationship remains the same and change must occur for long-term success. When you have a cash advance with CCGA, you’re responsible for repaying as your commodity is sold. This is done each time you market the crop or livestock advanced on, until the advance is paid off. Making these repayments can be done by sending payment directly to us, or by asking an authorized grain buyer ​to take a deduction.
