SaskCanola and SaskFlax announce management collaboration


The Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) and the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission (SaskFlax) have announced a new management collaboration.

Greg Sundquist, chair of SaskFlax, says the new arrangement offers “administrative and operational efficiencies within our industry ensures that growers’ levy dollars are put to the best use.”

Canola and flax levies will continue to be collected separately. In addition, SaskCanola and SaskFlax will maintain individual boards of directors and separate governance structures. By sharing administrative and managerial tasks the commissions can focus on their shared mandates in research, extension and market development, says Sundquist.

This collaboration also means both crop commissions with a full staff complement to support both boards at the shared offices at Saskatoon.

Charlene Bradley, chair of SaskCanola, says they recognize the importance of a strong voice for Saskatchewan growers, by combining forces they hope to convey a clear message from growers.
