Alberta Barley works closely with a number of industry partners both provincially and nationally to speak with a strong, unified voice on issues and concerns that affect businesses, organizations, individuals and families throughout the agriculture industry. This work is largely done through Alberta Barley’s involvement in Team Alberta, the Barley Council of Canada (BCC) and the Grain Growers of Canada (GGC).
Team Alberta is a collaboration between the four major crop commissions in Alberta: Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers and the Alberta Wheat Commission. Team Alberta works to advance policy issues that impact Alberta's crop sector both provincially and nationally. Together, Team Alberta combines resources to strengthen the voice of Alberta's crop sector through advocacy, promotion of sustainability, ensuing long-term market access and providing policy input to government.Learn more about Team Alberta
