Jim Everson Named President of the Canola Council of Canada

The Canola Council of Canada has chosen its next president.

Jim Everson, currently the executive director of Soy Canada, has been hired to lead the canola industry organization.

“Jim is a respected leader who brings significant industry vision, as well as understanding of the domestic and global issues and opportunities we face,” said David Dzisiak, chair of the CCC Board of Directors, on Tuesday. “We are confident that with his leadership and expertise, our industry will continue its successful path toward our Keep it Coming 2025 strategy.”

It’s a homecoming of sorts for Everson, as he served as the council’s vice president of government relations from 2008 to 2015. He was also the executive director of the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association prior to joining Soy Canada. Everson has worked in government relations and policy in Ottawa for over 30 years.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to work with the tremendous team at the Canola Council; a remarkably talented staff and committed, focused Board of Directors,” says Everson. “I look forward to returning to the Council and being part of the continued growth and success of the canola industry.”

Everson will formally start with the CCC on May 23rd.

He replaces Patti Miller, who stepped down in January to become the chief commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission.
