Administrative history

The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association is a non-profit, voluntary farm organization founded in 1970 as Palliser Triangle Wheat Growers Association. The first president of the Association was Wally Nelson. The Association helps individual wheat farmers to represent their interest to government and other sectors of the agriculture. The Association head office is in Regina. Revision of the Association name to Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association happened in 1985. The president of the Association at that time was George Fletcher. The Board of Directors is elected at the annual conventions. WCWGA is active and strives for establishment of the flexible system for individual farmers to maximize their profitability. The Association is entirely supported by member contributions.
