Leading by Example
As the farmer-driven association for the grains industry, GGC advocates for the federal government to make decisions that support the competitiveness and profitability of grain growers across Canada.
Building Stronger Relationships
We seek to inform decision-makers and push the levers of power in a more favourable direction and continue to build positive and productive relationships with elected officials across all party lines.
