Grain Handling in Canada

| 24 min

This film details the functions of the Board of Grain Commissioners, under the provisions of the Canada Grain Act. Wheat is followed from its delivery and inspection at a prairie elevator until its final inspection as it is loaded onto ships at the Lakehead terminal elevators.

The Canadian Grain Commission celebrates its centennial in April 2012. For more info, visit its official website.
