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 Advanced Payment Program operated by Agriculture and
Agri-Food Canada. Nearly 30 years later the CCGA has expanded its cash
advance administrator portfolio to include over 20 grains and oilseeds.
In addition, the CCGA has become a strong advocate for canola farmers on
national and international issues and policies.
