If you are planning on heading down to the Calgary Stampede this year, make sure to stop at the Canola booth to view the “Canola” travelling exhibition from the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.
This interactive exhibition presents the Canadian story of ingenuity behind this healthy and versatile crop now exported to over 50 countries, generating billions for our economy each year. Canola: A Story of Canadian Innovation explores the history and development of canola, its uses in industries from food processing to transportation, and its place on Canadian tables. The exhibition also opens a window into the potential future of canola — visitors will learn, through their five senses, about canola and the current research being conducted to improve its varieties and yield.
Partners on the project include:
• Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
• Alberta Canola Producers Commission
• Canadian Canola Growers Association
• Canola Council of Canada
• Manitoba Canola Growers Association
• Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission
The Museum has developed the travelling exhibition in consultation with partners and the Canola Initiative National Advisory Committee (CINAC) to ensure a balanced and broad spectrum approach for maximum public engagement.
You can visit the display in the Ag Zone inside the Nutrien Western Event Centre, at the
Calgary Stampede from July 8 – 17, 2022.
