Board of Directors

The eleven members of the Canadian Pork Council’s Board of Directors are appointed at its Annual General Meeting. The number of Directors that sit on the CPC Board from each member association is based on each province’s share of national hog production.

Providing industry expertise on current issues and determining the Canadian Pork Council’s future path, our Board plays a crucial role in the advancement of the Council’s efforts, as well as the Canadian hog sector.

The Canadian Pork Council’s Board of Directors is made up of representatives from all nine provincial producer organizations. They include:
