Tranberg most recently served as an assistant deputy minister for the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, and was responsible for three branches: Crops and Irrigation, Agriculture Research, and Regional Services. Prior to this, Janice served as the vice president (Western Canada) for CropLife Canada (2007 to 2013), where she worked on the direction, development, and implementation of the group’s strategic plan to include parameters of advocacy, science and regulatory, stewardship, committee and stakeholder leadership and engagement, and communications.

“I am very excited to return to Saskatoon and join the SaskCanola team. The organization is a respected leader in the Canadian and global canola industry,” says Tranberg. “I am passionate about this sector and believe canola has great opportunity for continued growth in consumers’ diets and the business plans of growers. I look forward to working closely with SaskCanola’s Board of Directors to implement their strategic plan, discuss issues with producers, and build strong relationships with SaskCanola’s stakeholders.”
