History of payments to producers

Licensed grain companies must provide security to the Canadian Grain Commission to cover money owed to producers for grain deliveries. When a licensed company fails to pay, the Safeguards for Grain Farmers Program uses the company’s security to pay you if your claim is eligible.

Details about payments made through the Safeguards for Grain Farmers Program since 2021 are archived in the list of producer claims processes.
