The Year Ahead

A look at CAAR’s plans and priorities for 2020.

CAAR’s staff, board of directors and committee groups are putting in the work to ensure the association is well-equipped at all levels to provide valuable services and dependable support to its members in the next year, and throughout the new decade.

CAAR 2020 and Beyond

CAAR has completed year one of its long-term strategic plan, developed in fall 2018 to guide the association’s focus and direction. As we prepare to embark on the next phase of our long-term strategy, we also enter a new decade of supporting agri-retailers influencing world class food production.

Ensuring Soil Health to Feed the World

SPONSORED BY FERTILIZER CANADA: Fertilizer is one of nature’s most complex and beneficial resources, as it allows soil to become more productive and yield better crops. Without it, we simply couldn’t produce enough corn, wheat, rice, or other crops needed to feed the world’s population. Faced with a growing global population, less arable land, and environmentally-conscious consumers, farmers are looking for ways to grow more crops on the same land while protecting the environment. It’s a tall order to be sure, but farmers are up to the challenge.

Taking the Lead with NH3

CAAR has helped members weather regulatory changes for 25 years.

When the members of the Western Fertilizer and Chemical Dealers Association (WFCDA) voted to form a national organization, they sought to achieve more clout with regulators. The new organization would be better positioned to help ensure decision makers considered the agri-retailer perspective when creating policy that would affect their businesses. No issue illustrates this better than the ongoing work CAAR has done on behalf of its members regarding anhydrous ammonia (NH3) regulations.

Making Canada's Fertilizer Industry Safer Through our World-Class Codes of Practice

SPONSORED BY FERTILIZER CANADA: Over the years, Fertilizer Canada has developed world-class safety and security programs through eLearning and Codes of Practice to complement the safety initiatives of our members. Safety is the number one priority of the fertilizer industry. Our members work to ensure that every day their employees and facilities meet stringent requirements for a safe workplace as they work to make products which help feed the world. This commitment is upheld beyond the boundaries of their sites as they work with first responders to ensure the safety of their communities and educate their customers on proper use of the product.

A Circular Solution

Closing the loop on nutrient use is becoming a common conversation in the fertilizer sector.

To help meet the future food demands of a growing population, the fertilizer industry is starting to look more seriously at closing the loop on nutrient use.
