2017 marks several milestones, most notably Canada’s 150th birthday. But 2017 also marks 50 years since the genesis of the Canola Council of Canada, and to celebrate, the canola industry will host a traveling exhibition that tells the story of canola’s success.
The Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, based at Ottawa’s Central Experimental Farm, and industry partners have joined together to create “Canola: A Canadian Story of Innovation” that will highlight the science, stories, and ingenuity behind the innovation, development, and global success of the crop. The exhibit will be launched at the Canola Council of Canada’s “Good As Gold” 50th Annual Convention in Winnipeg March 7-9, 2017, and will then become a long-term exhibit at the Ag Museum later in the year.
“As the Canola Council of Canada celebrates 50 years in 2017 we couldn’t be more proud to tell the story of five decades of achievement and transformation in the Canadian canola industry and the exciting opportunities ahead,” says Patti Miller, president of the Canola Council of Canada.
