This annual publication, now known as Grain Elevators in Canada, contains lists of licensed elevators, their locations and capacity in western and eastern Canada. Thank you to the Canadian Grain Commission for providing print issues of the Grain Elevators in Canada series for digitization for this project.
As it is currently Open Access Week, it is only fitting that these lists of grain elevator activity in Canada are now openly available!
For more information about this project, see this news release. October 24, 2014

Grain Grower's Guide (1908-1928) is described as "the most important publication of the early farm movement." (The Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan). It was first published by the Grain Growers Grain Company (GGGC) under the editorial leadership of E. A. Partridge, one of the founders of the farming cooperative. GGG later became the Country Guide, which continues to be published in Winnipeg by the United Grain Growers.
Edited by J. W. Bengough (1851-1923), "cartoonist, editor, publisher, author, entertainer, and politician." Aptly described as "bombastically nationalistic." (John Wilson Bengough, Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online)
