The CWB Alliance is a politically non-partisan organization focused on farmers’ right to market through the Canadian Wheat Board.
The Alliance draws memberships from across the growing region covered by the CWB.
Members of the Alliance recognize the advantages the Board brings to producers through the single desk and price pooling, quality assurance through the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC), as well as the important role the CWB plays as an advocate for farmers in transportation, producer cars, and on the world stage such as at the WTO negotiations.
Never before has there been more pressure to remove the farm community’s hard-won safeguards. The Canadian Wheat Board Alliance seeks to preserve the values and benefits provided to producers and communities by the efforts of predecessors.
CWB is one of the most experienced wheat and barley marketers in the world. The Winnipeg-based organization has sold grain to over 70 countries, based on a reputation for high-quality product, reliable service and trusted international relationships. Underpinned by industry partnerships and a growing asset base, it offers a range of marketing programs to Canadian farmers, including its popular pool contracts, providing solid returns and significant risk-management benefits.
CWB launched the Farmer Equity Plan in 2013. The plan provides that eligible farmers who deliver grain against CWB contracts will receive an equity interest in the company after privatization, and is the only opportunity for farmers to gain an ownership stake in a Canadian-focused grain company.
