Erin Gowriluk is the new executive director of the Grain Growers of Canada.
Gowriluk has an extensive background in agriculture policy. She most recently worked for Syngenta Canada and prior to that was the policy analyst for Alberta Wheat and Alberta Barley. She also has worked for Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development.
“A strong leader, Erin is already well known and respected in our industry,” said Grain Growers chair Jeff Nielsen, who farms near Olds. “She will bring a tremendous amount to the role as she implements the new organizational framework developed during our recent year-long strategic review.”
Grain Growers of Canada is an umbrella organization for 16 provincial, regional and national grower groups, including Alberta Wheat, Alberta Barley, Alberta Pulse Growers, the Canadian Canola Growers Association, and the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association.
