Innovation is a competitive advantage for Canadian farmers. It is through ongoing innovation that Canadian wheat exports will compete with the likes of the Black Sea. In the period of 2015-2018, Canada has consistently been in the top 10 wheat producing countries in the world and within the top 5 wheat exporting countries in the world. Focusing on innovations by increasing wheat yield while maintaining or exceeding our country’s reliability in yield, sustainability, food safety and quality will help to maintain, or ideally advance, Canada’s position in a competitive global wheat market.

There have been some unexpected impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of these is the new celebrity status of our Chief Medical Health Officers. A lot of people who just a few short months ago never even knew every province had a Chief Medical Health Officer are now hanging on to every word. Does this mean science and respected authority based on knowledge education and experience is coming back in style? I hope this is the case but there are worrying signs society’s newfound trust in science may not outlast COVID-19.
Customers around the world have begun asking Canada for assurances that our supply chain will remain whole during the COVID-19 pandemic and that Canada will be an ongoing reliable supplier of grain. These are valid questions that are shared by Canadian consumers. The lack of flour in most grocery stores is an indication that some believe there might be a break down in supply in the days or weeks to come.
