About the consultation
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has launched a consultation regarding the review of the Canada Grain Act.

The consultation will be open from January 12, 2021 to April 30, 2021.
Led by AAFC, the Canada Grain Act review is intended to ensure an innovative and modern regulatory system that safeguards grain farmers, enhances Canada's reputation for grain quality, and strengthens international competitiveness.
