Collection of Check-off Funds

Western wheat and barley check-off deductions are made on sales of wheat and barley delivered to licensed grain buyers who issue cash purchase tickets effective August 1, 2012. These amounts are noted on the Cash Purchase Ticket provided on grains sales at Canadian Grain Commission-licensed facilities.

The check-offs apply to wheat and barley grown in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta (Alberta barley exempt), and the Peace River District of British Columbia. The check-offs support wheat and barley market and variety development.The check-offs do not apply to imports, producer-to-producer sales, and feed and exports not delivered through licensed facilities. Producers are able to request a refund of the check-off if they wish. These transitional check-offs are in addition to any provincial check-offs.
