As agriculture policy issues surface, AWC is poised to join the discussion with our federal and provincial governments as well as develop advocacy initiatives that have farmers’ best interests in mind. Collaboration has been key in building our momentum – we often work closely with other provincial farm organizations through Team Alberta as well as our national organizations; Cereals Canada and Grain Growers of Canada (GGC) to strengthen agriculture’s voice when it comes to addressing challenges faced by producers.
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 work 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
