The Canadian Crops Convention is an annual, three day event hosted each March by the Canola Council of Canada and the Canada Grains Council. This event attracts people from across the grain, oilseed, pulse and special crop value chains to:

  • network, coordinate and improve dialogue;
  • discuss and gain insight into advancements and trends in agriculture; and
  • be inspired to continue a collaborative approach to advance the growth and profitability of Canadian crops.

During these three informative, in-person days, you'll have opportunities to make connections with colleagues and customers from around the world in a business-focused environment.

Your hosts

The Canola Council of Canada is the first industry association in Canada to encompass all links in the value chain. The CCC is building on the strengths of canola, Canada's greatest agricultural success story.

The Canada Grains Council represents grain industry interests on behalf of producers, crop input companies, grain companies, processors, end users, government departments, financial institutions, regulatory agencies and others. The CGC coordinates efforts to increase the sale and use of Canadian grain in domestic and world markets.

What to wear

In early March, the average daytime temperature in Ottawa is around 2.5°C. There may be periods of snow in the forecast, so we recommend bringing a pair of snow boots and a warm winter jacket. 

Here's a quick list of dress code suggestions to consider when packing:

  • Business casual for the Welcome Reception and daytime plenary sessions.
  • Formal attire for the Thursday gala event at the Canadian Museum of History.
