Advocacy and Compliance

Ag retailers must demonstrate and document their compliance with federal, provincial, municipal and county regulations. CAAR advocates on your behalf in discussions with government on regulatory issues. In 2018, CAAR successfully secured Equivalency and Temporary Certificates to provide its members with compliance relief on updated hydrostatic testing requirements on nurse tanks.

Resources for Retailers

Through CAAR Training, CAAR Perk$ and CAAR Mart, members receive the resources they need to keep on top of considerations that are imperative for ag retailers including safety training, human resources management and facility signage. These services make it that much more convenient for CAAR members to keep their operations running smoothly.

The CAAR Conference

The annual CAAR Conference is the leading business event for ag retailers, bringing together retailers from across Canada for two-and-a-half days of outstanding networking and education opportunities. Featuring a tradeshow floor with the latest in products and services from our suppliers, illuminating speaker sessions and exciting events like CAAR’s Pro-Ag Investments Auction and the Innovation Showdown, you won’t want to miss the 2019 CAAR Conference in Winnipeg. CAAR members receive exceptional value on retailer, exhibitor and supplier passes.

Member Recognition

How can ag retailers stand out in the crowd? Along with its offerings of professional development, education and learning opportunities to gain competitive edge and differentiate your business, CAAR recognizes members through its annual CAAR’s Choice Awards program. With categories for individuals and companies, the CAAR’s Choice Awards recognize agri-retailers for their business excellent, commitment to environmental-stewardship best practices and support for their communities and the industry. Only CAAR members are eligible for these prestigious awards.
