The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) has made notice of the suspension of five primary licenses and one grain dealer license.
According to the CGC, as of April 20, 2021, the licenses of W.A. Grain & Pulse Solutions are suspended until April 30, 2021. This means you will be protected by security under the Canada Grain Act with business conducted prior to April 20.
With the possibility that CGC could revoke W.A. Grain’s licenses, farmers owed money by the company will be asked to submit their claims to the CGC to access security posted by the company. The CGC is emphasizing the importance of keeping any and all receipts in light of the possibility.
Currently, if you are owed money by this company for grain deliveries, you should contact the CGC immediately.
W.A. Grain & Pulse Solutions, which has facilities in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Prince Edward Island, is also a part of the Plant Protein Alliance of Alberta (PPAA), which recently announced the closure of its operations as of April 20, 2021.
RealAgriculture reached out to W.A. Grain for comment, but has not heard back.
