COVID-19 updates and resources
As Canada responds to COVID-19 pandemic, the Canola Council is working with other national commodity organizations to coordinate advice to government officials on agriculture challenges posed by COVID-19 and to provide information to the full grains and oilseeds value chain. Our goal is to ensure that all parts of the industry have access to the inputs and resources needed to grow, process and deliver the high-quality canola products our customers rely upon.
All Canola Council staff are currently working remotely. If you have questions or issues of concern relating to COVID-19 impacts on the canola industry, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Information for customers and international partners
During this pandemic, the Canadian canola value chain is focused on keeping our people healthy and ensuring our ability to continue producing, processing and delivering high-quality canola products to trade partners all over the world. From the beginning, the Canadian agri-food sector has been designated an Essential Service that should remain operating. Canadian growers and supply chains have been quick to respond to this new challenge.
As a result, the Canadian canola industry is well-positioned to meet the world’s need for high-quality seed, oil and meal. We continue to adapt and work closely with our trade partners and governments to supply food and feed during this unprecedented time.
