CPMA continues to actively represent the industry in election efforts, including meetings and submissions to all parties outlining the key issues of importance to industry for consideration.
CPMA members are encouraged to reach out to local candidates to help amplify the voice of the fresh produce sector and ensure our needs and priorities are reflected in the federal campaign.
NOTE: You can find the names of the candidates running in your local riding by typing in your postal code on the Elections Canada website.
