Grain elevators are licensed by the Canadian Grain Commission. Elevator types refer to the categories used in licensing.
There are four elevator types in current use.
For official definitions of elevator types, please refer to section 2 of the Canada Grain Act (Department of Justice).
Summaries prior to 1971 include elevator types no longer defined in the Canada Grain Act. Searches for historical summaries prior to 1971 will display information for the older elevator types.
