Fertilizer Canada commends the federal, provincial, and territorial governments for their continued efforts in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, and for giving assurances to Canadian farmers that work will continue as normal. Fertilizer production supply chains will remain open during this critical time of year.

"We are very pleased to see that not only has the federal government declared our industry and supply chain as an essential service, but so have a majority of provinces," said Garth Whyte, President and CEO at Fertilizer Canada. "Our manufacturing facilities will continue to operate at normal capacity to meet the demands of farmers as they begin preparations for the spring planting season."

The Canadian fertilizer industry has proven its adaptability in challenging situations to meet not only the needs of customers, but any worker along the supply chain. Once the Canadian economy works to bounce back from this challenging period, farmers and producers will undoubtedly play a leading role in the country's economic recovery in the coming months.

"The Canadian fertilizer industry employs over 76,000 workers and contributes nearly $24 billion to Canada's economy every year. In order to maintain our status as a global leader and to keep our workers and communities safe, industry and government must work together, particularly during this global health crisis," said Whyte.

Fertilizer Canada looks forward to working with all political parties to seek solutions to the challenges faced by the fertilizer industry today. This will ensure farmers in Canada and around the world have access to reliable and sustainable fertilizer products.
