What check-offs will U.S. grain delivered to Canadian elevators be subject to?
Most grain delivered in Canada is subjected to a provincially regulated mandatory check-off to provincial commodity associations. Sellers of U.S. grain into Canadian grain facilities are not generally subject to a check-off but should obtain the check-off information from the company they are dealing with in Canada.
In the case of wheat and barley, a federal mandatory/refundable check-off is being implemented that will apply to wheat and barley grown in Western Canada. As such, it should not be applied to U.S. wheat or barley being delivered into Canada.
