SaskCanola launches texting service

Re-released: October 30, 2023 – SaskCanola is excited to announce the launch of its new communications platform – an interactive texting service!

The addition of this platform aims to enhance efforts to communicate more directly with our membership about the ongoing, multi-pronged ways our Commission is providing value to farmers by sharing real-time, customized updates. 

Farmers who subscribe can expect to receive: 

  • a weekly oilseeds market outlook report (SaskCanola invests in a market analyst that provides a weekly update on domestic and global influences on canola market prices)
  • Canola Watch, a weekly (during the growing season) canola production newsletter
  • plus event notices and urgent news/alerts

Farmers will also be able to engage directly with the SaskCanola team by texting our dedicated number to initiate a two-way conversation.

“Our intention with launching this new texting service is to provide farmers with timely information that empowers them to make informed decisions to optimize their farm businesses,” shares Tracy Broughton, SaskCanola’s Executive Director.

To subscribe, text keyword SASKCANOLA to 1-877-241-7044.

By texting SaskCanola, you agree to receive promotional messages from SaskCanola sent via an autodialer. This subscription is not a condition of any service. Estimated 10 messages/month. Message & data rates may apply. Reply STOP to unsubscribe or HELP for help. Terms and Privacy Policy can be found at
