Value of Leadership

Manitoba Canola Growers recognizes that the success of the canola industry hinges on strong leadership and support for canola from the time it is planted in the field to when it is consumed in the kitchen and all steps in between.

“If your action inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more you are a leader” — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS

Leadership is not tied to a specific title or the ability to exert powerLeaders can emerge at any level; they cultivate a desire in the people around them  to all work toward a common goal.

Learn to Lead gives farmers the opportunity to expand the skills they need to lead and give back to their communities and the agriculture industry. This event has created a network of over 100 leadership alumni who are passionate about the agriculture industry. If you are interested in attending this event please contact Corina Lepp

Canola Eat Well initiatives have created a strong network of over 185 influential dietitians, chefs, food writers, cook book authors, and home economists that continues to grow. This group of leaders are inspired by farmers stories and are now sharing that passion and carrying the canola message to a wider audience.
