Minister's Message

The Honourable Lawrence MacAuley, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food

The Honourable Lawrence MacAuley,
Privy Councillor, Member of Parliament,
Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food

I am pleased to present the Canadian Grain Commission’s report on fees for 2022–23.

The Service Fees Act ensures that government fees are fair and transparent, and provides for clear service standards and performance results for reporting to Canadians.

The Canadian Grain Commission is committed to continuous improvement and, in 2022-23, initiated a comprehensive service fee review. This review will modernize fees and service standards in accordance with the Service Fees Act. Any adjustments are targeted for April 1, 2025.

Canadian Grain Commission fee revenue in 2022-23 was impacted by the lingering effects of the historic 2021 drought in western Canada. Export grain volumes were significantly lower in the first half of the year because of low stocks coming out of the drought. As a result, even though there was a rebound in exports in the second half of 2022-23, the department experienced a decrease in fee revenue for the year. Despite this, the Canadian Grain Commission continued to deliver the research, inspection and producer safeguards that are critical to our sector’s success. As always, I commend the Canadian Grain Commission and its programs and services for supporting grain farmers throughout the unpredictable fluctuations in grain production and market access.

As Canada’s Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, I will continue to support the Canadian Grain Commission’s efforts to meet the needs of Canadian farmers and the entire value chain.

Chief Commissioner’s message

Chief Commissioner, Doug Chorney

Doug Chorney
Chief Commissioner
Canadian Grain Commission

As Chief Commissioner, I am pleased to put forward the Canadian Grain Commission’s 2022-23 Fees Report and invite you to review our service standard and performance results for this past year. These results demonstrate how hard all Canadian Grain Commission staff work to provide timely services to Canadian grain farmers, the grain sector, and all Canadians.

Most of the Canadian Grain Commission’s operating revenue comes from charging fees for services and licences. To ensure that our fees remain balanced and reflect program delivery costs going forward, we have initiated a comprehensive review. The review will include looking at fee levels, service standards, and seeking sector feedback. We are planning to complete this work by April 1, 2025, with any changes taking effect at that time.

In 2022-23, the volume of grain inspected and weighed by the Canadian Grain Commission was lower than the forecast because of the carryover effects of the 2021 drought on export volumes. This contributed to a revenue shortfall and the need to draw on our revolving fund surplus. Fortunately, grain production returned to expected levels in 2022, allowing for exports to increase in the last half of the fiscal year.

As we’ve seen over the last few years, grain production and export fluctuations can be unpredictable, hitting near-record highs and lows over a short period of time. Throughout these fluctuations, Canadian Grain Commission staff continued to adapt, delivering high quality results for the value chain regardless of the shifting pressures. I am proud to lead such a dedicated and capable organization.

About this report

This report, which is tabled under section 20 of the Service Fees Act, the Low Materiality Fees Regulations, and subsection 4.2.8 of the Treasury Board Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, contains information about the fees Canadian Grain Commission had the authority to set in fiscal year 2022–23.

The report covers fees that are subject to the Service Fees Act.

For reporting purposes, fees are categorized by fee-setting mechanism. There are three mechanisms:

  1. Act, regulation or fees notice
    • The authority to set these fees is delegated to a department, minister or Governor in Council pursuant to an act of Parliament.
  2. Contract
    • Ministers have the authority to enter into contracts, which are usually negotiated between the minister and an individual or organization, and which cover fees and other terms and conditions. In some cases, that authority may also be provided by an act of Parliament.
  3. Market-rate or auction
    • The authority to set these fees is pursuant to an act of Parliament or a regulation, and the Minister, department or Governor in Council has no control over the fee amount.

For fees set by act, regulation or fees notice, the report provides totals for fee groupings, as well as detailed information for each fee. For fees set by contract, the report provides totals only. The Canadian Grain Commission did not have fees set by market rate or auction

Although the fees the Canadian Grain Commission charges under the Access to Information Act were subject to the Service Fees Act, they are not included in this report. Information on the Canadian Grain Commission’s access to information fees for 2022–23 is in our annual report to Parliament on the administration of the Access to Information Act: Transparency.

Remissions

In 2022–23, the Canadian Grain Commission was subject to the requirements to issue remissions under section 7 of the Service Fees Act and subsection 4.2.4 of the Treasury Board Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities to remit a fee, in whole or in part, to a fee payer when a service standard was not met. The Canadian Grain Commission’s remission policy and procedures, pursuant to the Service Fees Act, are on the following web page: Service Fee Remission Policy.

The other sections of this report provide detailed amounts on the Canadian Grain Commission’s remissions for 2022–23.

Overall totals, by fee setting mechanism

The following table presents the total revenue, cost and remissions for all fees the Canadian Grain Commission had the authority to set in 2022–23, by fee-setting mechanism.

Overall totals for 2022–23, by fee setting mechanism

Fees set by contract 729,237.72 729,237.22 Remissions do not apply to fees set by contract.

Total3 43,956,866.32 67,044,600.50 17,577.21
  1. The Canadian Grain Commission received approximately $6.9 million in 2022-23 in appropriation that is not included in the revenue.
  2. The Canadian Grain Commission operates primarily as a revolving fund, which has a continuing, non-lapsing authority from Parliament. This is a funding mechanism where revenues remain available in order to finance continuing operations without fiscal year limitations
  3. In 2022-23, the Canadian Grain Commission provided official inspection and official weighing on lower than anticipated grain volumes caused by extreme weather conditions. The revenue shortfall was covered by revolving fund surplus.

Totals, by fee grouping, for fees set by act, regulation or fees notice

A fee grouping is a set of fees relating to a single business line, directorate or program that a department had the authority to set for those activities.

This section presents, for each fee grouping, the total revenue, cost and remissions for all fees the Canadian Grain Commission had the authority to set in 2022–23 that are set by the following:

Details on each fee set by act, regulation or fees notice

This section provides detailed information on each fee the Canadian Grain Commission had the authority to set in 2022–23 and that was set by the following:

  • act
  • regulation
  • fees notice

The Canadian Grain Commission operates as a revolving fund (a statutory, non-lapsing authority), which allows for services and licences provided in one fiscal year to have funds collected in a different fiscal year. The effects of this timing difference on reporting are:

  • a fee may have revenue in a fiscal year when the service standard indicates the service was not requested.
  • revenue and fee amounts may not align with units billed.
