July 5, 2023 – Over the past year, we have continued to build a strong and progressive organization that represents the entire seed value chain and fosters strong relationships with policymakers.
Within our second year of operation, one of the priorities focused on included increased communications and engagement with members and clients. We held our first in-person Annual Conference followed by a semi-annual meeting, launched a webinar series and monthly industry newsletter, introduced new platforms to support our membership, and embarked on our first national tour to engage with members, clients, and new stakeholders. We have been a leader in various policy files, including seed regulatory modernization, intellectual property protecting, and sustainability.
We have developed our 2022-23 Year in Review as a resource to highlight the work being done by Seeds Canada. Click here to view the 2022-23 Year in Review.
