The Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat) was established in June 2013 by the Saskatchewan Government as an agency operating under the Agri-Food Act, 2004. It reports to the Agri-Food Council and is governed by The Wheat Development Plan Regulations and related Orders, which set out the purpose and powers of the organization, its governance structure and reporting requirements.
Sask Wheat has a seven-member Board of Directors, elected by registered wheat producers in Saskatchewan. Board members must be registered wheat producers in Saskatchewan. Each term of office is four years. A Director may complete two successive terms, but then must step down for a period of two years before being eligible for re-election. Elections will be held every two years and election results will be announced each January at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
