CPMA continues to actively represent the industry in election efforts, including meetings and submissions to all parties outlining the key issues of importance to industry for consideration.

Now that Federal Election 2021 has come to an end, the Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) and our partner, the Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) will host a series of targeted Meet and Greets with key members of the 44th Parliament. These virtual meetings with industry members will serve to reinforce our organizations’ policy priorities, specifically within the context of platform commitments and Ministerial mandate letters. Learn more about CPMA and CHC’s Meet and Greet series.
