The search is on for the next president and CEO of the Canola Council of Canada.

Jim Everson announced his plans to leave the organization earlier this month, agreeing to stay in the role until a replacement is found.

Board chair Jennifer Marchand says Jim played a key role in reforming the Canola Council's financial governance, opening new market pathways and
leading the value chain through challenging market access issues.

Everson was named president of the CCC in April of 2017,  having previously served in the role of vice president and government relations from 2008 to 2015.
