Canada Grains Council Getting Money To Build Export Markets

The Canada Grains Council is getting 100 thousand dollars from the federal government.

The money is earmarked for the Council’s participation in various international roundtable discussions about barriers to trade.

The federal government says that participation will ensure that Canada’s exporting interests are put forward in those discussions.

The Canada Grains Council was formed in 1969 to coordinate efforts to increase the sale and use of Canadian grain in domestic and world markets.

The Canadian grain industry generated 18 point 6 billion dollars in export sales in 2012.
