Grain Elevators in Canada now online
By Top Crop Manager
Oct. 23, 2014 - Thanks to a partnership with the University of Alberta Libraries, data on grain elevators in Canada collected by the Canadian Grain Commission beginning in 1912 is now available online.
Fully searchable, digital copies of these records from 1912 to 1998 are openly accessible via the University of Alberta Libraries' website, Peel's Prairie Provinces, a website dedicated to preserving western Canadian history and Canadian Prairie culture. These records contain lists of licensed elevators, their locations and capacity in Western and Eastern Canada. The website also features an online bibliography of books, pamphlets and other materials related to the development of the Prairies, as well as a searchable, full-text collection of many of these items.
Grain Elevators in Canada was first published in 1912 and is one of the Canadian Grain Commission's oldest reports.
