Sask Wheat holds elections every two years. The first Director election was in 2013, when all seven positions were elected. Four of the Directors were elected to four-year terms, while three of the Directors were elected to temporary two-year terms to allow for the election cycle to be installed. Those three director positions were up for election in 2015 and all of the Director positions are now four-year terms.
The Sask Wheat Director elections are run according to The Wheat Development Plan Regulations of The Agri-Food Act, 2004. The Regulations determine who is eligible to run for office, who is eligible to vote, the requirements for a returning officer and the conduct of the elections.
