Are you ready? Here it is...

Meet the canola seed. It may look tiny, but it contains something very important: the power to feed more and more people while making a smaller and smaller impact on the environment. It contains biotechnology – the science that helps crops meet the challenges of a growing world.

Our country has exported canola around the world since the 1970s. Wherever canola biotechnology goes, good things happen. In farm fields, it helps Canadian growers earn a good living while reducing their environmental impact. When it’s crushed into canola oil, it nourishes families with its healthy fats. It creates jobs and sparks innovation at every step of its journey: from the greenhouses where it’s bred, to the rural communities where it’s crushed and the bustling ports where it’s sold to markets around the world.

Recently, people have started taking a closer look at where their food comes from. They're hearing the buzz around genetically modified crops, and they’re asking, “Is my food safe?” And, “Is it safe for the environment?”

These questions are important, and they deserve insightful answers. Biotech crops like Canadian canola are an important tool to help us feed all 9 billion people who will live on this planet in 2050. And to do it in a way that helps protect our environment and natural resources.

We need your help to share the true story of Canadian canola so it continues to be one we’re proud to tell. You can connect your community to balanced information on biotechnology. It’s not just about Canadian canola – it’s about all of us.
