Canada: CHTA Annual Convention Nov 16-18 2009, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance- Annual Convention Nov 16-18 2009, Victoria Inn - Winnipeg, Manitoba
Since 1998, Canada has grown industrial hemp for seed and for fibre. Canadian farmers and businesses are interested in the growing business of hemp as it realizes its potential to produce healthy food and environmentally-friendly products, including paper, textiles, biocomposites and sustainable building materials.
To tap into the plant's exciting potential for Canada, the industry recognized the need for a common national front. The CHTA/ACCC was formed in 2003: we are a non-profit national group of hemp processors, marketers, farmers and information specialists.
Topics for their convention include: Hemp Variety Development, Harvest Research, THC Testing, NAFGEN & Hemp, Fatty Acid & Amino Acid Analysis, Hemp as a Building Material, Fibre Handling, Animal Feed Trials and many others.
