Alberta Wheat Commission Looks Forward to Working with Cereals Canada President

Cereals Canada names new President in a release from the organization today.

(Calgary, Alberta) – The Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) would like to congratulate Cam Dahl on his recent appointment as President of Cereals Canada, which was announced by the organization earlier today.

"Cam Dahl is an excellent candidate to take on the leadership at Cereals Canada," says Kent Erickson, Chair of the AWC. "Cam brings with him years of experience in the agriculture industry and a strong background in policy and government, which will benefit the organization immensely as Cereals Canada will play an important role in representing the entire value chain on a national and international level."

Dahl comes to Cereals Canada with experience from a long list of agriculture organizations including the Manitoba Beef Producers, where he served as the General Manager, the Canadian Grain Commission, Canadian International Grains Institute Board of Directors, and the Grain Growers of Canada.

"AWC is eager to have a national body in place to represent the cereal grains industry," adds Erickson. "Our Board and staff look forward to working with Dahl and the Cereals Canada Board to further develop Canada’s presence in the international wheat market and provide more profitability for our growers."

Dahl’s position takes term in early March, where he will join the Board of Directors in a strategic planning session. Dahl’s main role will be to provide oversight of Cereal Canada’s strategic direction, and the development and management of the organization’s operations. Cereals Canada is a national organization consisting of partners from all sectors of the cereal value chain with a mandate to enhance the domestic and international competitiveness of Canadian cereals.
