History

The Canadian Wheat Board was created in 1919, as a result of the need to secure a price for Canadian Wheat in domestic and international markets. During the war years the prices for Canadian wheat had been fixed. James Stewart, appointed commissioner of the Wheat Board, secured an optimum price for wheat on behalf of Canadian farmers.
