An independent review of the Legacy Fund has found it was well managed, says Travis Toews, chair of the Canadian Cattlemen Market Development Council. The council was set up to administer the $80-million fund created by Ottawa and the province in 2005 to support the industry in the wake of BSE.
The independent review found it did a good job of governance and the fund was an important catalyst for developing a distinct Canadian brand. It also “identified areas of improvement,” said Toews.
