The Canadian federal government says it’s still committed to completing its review of the legislation that applies to Canada’s grain industry, but the timeline is now unknown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, reports Real Agriculture.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada launched the latest review of the Canada Grain Act in March 2019. Together with the Canadian Grain Commission, AAFC started seeking feedback from grain industry stakeholders on ways to potentially update the legislation, which has largely been unchanged since the early 1970s.

A paper summarizing the consultations with the grain sector was supposed to be published in March 2020, but it’s been delayed indefinitely, according to a spokesperson for AAFC.
