Hemp Promotion and Research Agency:
An Important Step for Canadian Hemp Producers

October 26, 2018 - The Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance (CHTA) congratulates the hemp producer committee who developed the hemp Promotion and Research Agency application on the decision by the Farm Products Council to evaluate the merits of the application.

“Our board has always been very supportive of hemp producers creating a national organization” stated Russ Crawford, President of the CHTA. The CHTA has strong representation and involvement from producers but non-producer members of our organization have shared the view that a hemp PRA will allow Canadian hemp producers to become a better partner with industry, researchers, provincial and national governments in the identification and delivery of strategic research and promotional programs” added Crawford.
