Connecting Canadian Farmers to SE Asia Markets: Now and in the Future

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. MST | sppcomm@ucalgary.ca

Grain exports are what helped build Western Canada in the 1900’s. Our railways across Canada made that happen, and they are key to our export future. What are the choke points, and what is the competition? Can our grain export capacity handle future growth, and how does oil by rail affect this?

If you are interested in exploring Canadian agriculture rail capacity and its priorities, you will want to join us for an expert panel discussion where we do a deep dive into this critical issue.
