By Marg Land
December 16, 2016, Ottawa, Ont – The annual general meeting of CanAgPlus, the corporation that owns and operates the CanadaGAP Program, was held Dec. 8, 2016, in Ottawa.
Members considered a number of resolutions submitted by the membership. One resolution was referred to the board of directors for further discussion and a report back to the 2017 AGM. Three resolutions were voted on and defeated.
CanadaGAP program participants elected four new directors to the CanAgPlus board:
- Jack Bates, Tecarte Farms
- Hugh Bowman, Agri Group of North America
- Cathy McKay, Nature’s Bounty Farm
- Jody Mott, Holland Marsh Growers’ Association
The new board of directors met subsequent to the AGM and reappointed Jack Bates to the chair and Hugh Bowman as vice-chair.
“We’re pleased to be working with a strong group of directors who have solid experience with the CanadaGAP program,” stated Bates. “The board is made up of a good cross-section of representatives from various sectors of the industry.”
Newly elected board members will serve a two-year term for 2017 and 2018.
