Flax Council of Canada president steps down

Organization embarks on search for new leadership

Flax Council of Canada president Wayne Thompson is stepping down from the organization after two years to take on a new role at the Western Grains Research Foundation.

Over his tenure, Thompson led the Flax Council of Canada through a transition in membership and direction, and worked towards eliminating trade barriers and building strong government relations to benefit the industry. 

Erwin Hanley, board chair, thanked Thompson in a press release for helping the organization deliver on its mission and vision, and wished him “nothing but success in his future endeavours.”

Over the next several months, the board will work with Ralph Kikkert at Strive to conduct a thorough search to find organization’s next president.
