CAAR is pleased to announce the next phase in its strategic overview and planning process – the annual CAAR member survey. Launching this month, the survey is designed to get critical feedback from CAAR members to help shape the future strategic goals and operating business plans of the association.

“This is a critical step for our team to get better acquainted with the needs of our membership” says Mitch Rezansoff, executive director of CAAR. “We need to hear what members' experience is like with our existing programs and services, but even more so, we are looking to learn what CAAR can do to provide increased value to our membership.”

By assessing both current and potential future services, as well as gaining insight on regulatory compliance issues, the annual member survey will allow CAAR to proactively identify and respond to member needs for programming and representation. In addition, CAAR is seeking insight to assist in the development of industry benchmarking reports and trend analysis.

While member participation is voluntary, Rezansoff urges members to share their perspective, ensuring their voice is heard and represented.

“These are exciting times for CAAR as we grow in our role as the representative voice of and force behind the ag retail industry in Canada. We rely on member insight to guide our actions and I look forward to hearing what CAAR members have to say.”

The annual CAAR member survey will launch in May 2018. For more information, please contact the CAAR office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
