Do you know a not-for-profit community based initiative you think is worthy of a $10,000 donation from Hensall Co-op? We have introduced our Strong Communities Initiative and are calling for nominations for our 2021 outlay.

 

The key criteria are as follows:

  • Applications are accepted from Canadian Community-based not-for-profit organizations in the Hensall Co-op trading area that support the broader community

  • Funding of a project that will have a long term impact on the community (i.e, not for normal operations)

  • Project has a clear and measurable benefit to the community

  • The project fills a strong need in the community; not for the benefit of a single individual

  • The organization has demonstrated that they can sustain the initiative to the end of the project

  • Priority will be given to organizations that have not received a large scale sponsorship/donation in the past 5 years

  • Our employees have identified that Community Health and Healthy living are important to them, therefore, we will give priority to projects in the area of Health and Healthy living

  • The organization must also be registered with Canada Revenue Agency as a charity, have a bank account in its own name and have been operating for over 12 months

More details related to eligibility criteria are outlined in the application which is available here:

Last week, we wrote a letter to the Minister of Labour of Canada demanding action to avert the threatened strike at the Port of Montreal. Canada’s reputation as a reliable provider of foodstuffs is being threatened by our inability to resolve the ongoing issues at our ports and on our railways.

Another strike will be disastrous for Canadian Agriculture and Canadian Farmers.  Please add your voice and tell Ottawa it is time to stop the strike before it is too late. You can call or send a letter to your MP.  You can also send a message through this website:  https://stopthestrike.ca

 

We have been patient as we have waited for over 25 months for a resolution to the dispute between the Port and its workers. It is difficult to imagine there will be a negotiated settlement. Please encourage the Government of Canada to employ every available mechanism to ensure the continuation of vital value-added container trade through the Port of Montreal.

HENSALL Hensall Co-op Chief Executive Officer Brad Chandler appeared before the International Trade Committee on Monday February 22nd to provide our perspective on Bill C18, “An Act to implement the Agreement on Trade Continuity between Canada and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.

 

The UK and Northern Ireland are critical markets for Hensall Co-op and Brad outlined the importance of free trade with them. The plant protein market is forecast to grow by a factor of 18 times by 2030 and it is critical that we are not faced with tariffs or quotas as this would substantially reduce growth opportunities for Canadian farmers. 

 

We are grateful to Huron-Bruce Member of Parliament Ben Lobb who is on the committee. Mr. Lobb asked several questions to reinforce the key issues. This was extremely important given some members of the committee are not very familiar with agriculture.

 

We are pleased to have been given the opportunity to stand for Canadian farmers at the House of Commons and we will continue to do so whenever and wherever we can.

We are pleased to announce Hensall Co-op is sponsoring and providing content for the Edible Bean School on RealAgriculture.com, starting on Monday February 22, 2021.


This video series gives growers the opportunity to learn - on their own time and at their own pace. Both producers who have never grown edibles and seasoned growers will find something to help them attain success growing human-grade edible beans.


We are pleased to share our market and agronomic expertise with Canadian producers, giving them the opportunity to take advantage of this growing segment of the food industry.
