Administrative history

The Nova Scotia Grain and Forage Commission was established on 19 May 1977 as the Provincial Grain Commission, operating under the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and Marketing. The commission worked alongside the Nova Scotia Grain Marketing Board and in 1992 its mandate and name expanded to include the responsibility of forages throughout the province.
