2016-2017 Sub-Program Licensing and Security

Program: Producer Protection Program

Sub-Program: Licensing and Security

Pursuant to the Canada Grain Act and Canada Grain Regulations, the CGC licenses or exempts grain companies from licensing if their businesses meet certain legislated requirements. The licensing and security program mitigates risks to producers of not being properly compensated for grain delivered to licensed grain companies and provides the framework for establishing and maintaining the Canadian grain quality assurance system. CGC licensees are required to obtain and maintain security for the purpose of covering their potential obligations to producers in the event of a company default.

Sub-Program: Producer Car Allocation

Pursuant to the Canada Grain Act and Canada Grain Regulations, the CGC provides an alternate grain delivery mechanism for producers and producer groups that wish to ship their own grain by railcar. The CGC works closely and cooperatively with the grain industry and the railways in an effort to ensure that producer car orders are filled in a timely manner. The CGC has sole responsibility for the allocation of available producer cars for all grains.

Sub-Program: Producer Support Program

The CGC has several programs and activities to ensure producers are properly compensated for the quality of grain delivered and shipped. These programs and activities are not material enough to be considered independently. They include the submitted samples program, the harvest sample program, re-inspection of samples on producer request, and investigation of quality and dockage complaints. In addition, the CGC continually collects and updates grain quality data and grain handling information and makes it available to producers and other interested parties to facilitate producer sales and marketing decisions.
