Fall Harvest 2018 and Spring 2019 Parliamentarian Event

Group of people in front of Parliament

As we approach the 2019 federal election, a number of key issues continue to impact the entire fresh produce supply chain in a Canada – taxes, labour, trade and many others. It is crucial that the produce industry is active in outreach to government to ensure that fresh produce industry needs are recognized in these efforts.

On November 5-7, 2018, members of the Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) and the Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) conducted three days of focused advocacy work on Parliament Hill, lobbying parliamentarians on these issues on behalf of Canada’s fruit and vegetable industry.

Our meetings are proven to work. Our advocacy in Ottawa led to several recommendations being included in the House of Commons Finance Committee’s pre-Budget 2018 report to the Finance Minister just one month after Fall Harvest 2017.
