Canadian Grain Commission (CGC)

All parts of this federal government department work toward one common goal: to ensure that Canada's grain is safe, reliable, and marketable and that Canadian grain producers are protected. It offers four services: quality assurance, quantity assurance, grain quality research and producer protection.

The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) regulates the grain handling industry and is the official certifier of Canadian grain. It implements a system of grading and inspection that governs handling, transportation and storage of grain.  The Commission carries out research aimed at building understanding of all aspects of grain quality and grain safety, and to support the grain grading system.
