June Inflation Rate Eases, Potentially Setting Stage for Rate Cut

The headline Canadian inflation rate ticked lower in June compared to a month earlier, potentially priming the Bank of Canada for another interest rate cut later this month. Released Tuesday, Statistics Canada’s consumer price index was up 2.7% on a year-over-year basis in June, down a hotter-than-expected the 2.9% gain in May. The decline in the June inflation rate, which was slightly steeper than expected by analysts and economists, was mainly attributed to slower growth in gas prices and lower prices for durable goods, which include things like cars and furniture. On the other hand, the price of food purchased from stores was up 2.1% in June after climbing 1.5% in May – marking the second consecutive month that grocery store food prices accelerated. Price growth for some food items such as dairy products (+2.0%), fresh vegetables (+3.8%), non-alcoholic beverages (+5.6%), as well as preserved fruit and fruit preparations (+9.5%), accelerated year over year in June, StatsCan sai

New Cargill Canola Facility More than Half Finished

The new Cargill canola processing facility being built in Regina is now more than half complete, the company said Tuesday. Announced in April 2021, Cargill broke ground on the facility at the Global Transportation Hub in West Regina in July 2022 and now anticipates opening in 2025. The company originally stated the plant – which at the time was expected to cost $350 million - would be operational for 2024. “The current construction environment is full of unique challenges and this project has faced many headwinds since we broke ground, but we are committed to becoming a best-in-class option for canola growers in the region, along with helping decarbonize the global food and fuel supply chain,” said Jeff Vassart, president of Cargill Canada. The new facility will have the capacity to process 1 million tonnes of canola per year, producing crude canola oil for food and biofuel markets and canola meal for animal feed. To support rail and road infrastructure around the new plant, C

Alberta Grains Bolsters WCI with $375,000 Contribution, New CFO Announced

Alberta Grains, in collaboration with the provincial government and industry partners, has announced substantial inaugural funding to support Western Crop Innovations (WCI) in advancing agricultural research and innovation tailored for the Western Prairies. Alberta Grains’ contributions of $375,000 will support WCI through the balance of the current fiscal year (through March 31, 2025). Alberta Grains will enter further discussions with WCI to create a long-term funding agreement. The announcement was made by Alberta Grains’ chair Tara Sawyer during the Alberta Grains and Alberta Small Brewers Association joint event “Combine to Craft,” held on July 10 at Cabin Brewing Company during the Calgary Stampede. “This investment in Western Crop Innovations reflects Alberta Grains‘ commitment to supporting sustainable agricultural practices right here in Alberta and enhancing productivity for Alberta farmers,” said Michael Flynn, Alberta Grains’ executive director. “By collaborating with WC

Growing Agricultural Awareness Alberta Canola’s Presence at the Calgary Stampede

“What are those yellow fields? Do you get canola oil from the flowers? How is canola oil made? What are the health benefits of canola oil?” These are just a few of the many questions asked at the Alberta Canola booth at the Calgary Stampede. Alberta Canola’s presence at this event is a key part of our commitment to educating consumers about the vital role of canola in Alberta’s agriculture industry and economy. The Calgary Stampede, attracting a diverse audience, provides an excellent platform for Alberta Canola to engage with international visitors and the local public to raise awareness about canola and agriculture in our province. Canola is a key crop in Alberta, contributing significantly to the province’s agricultural output. By being at the Stampede, Alberta Canola directly connects with consumers to dispel myths and share facts about canola oil’s health benefits, its sustainability, and its importance to local farmers. This face-to-face interaction helps build trust and transp
