The fonds consists of minutes of the Canadian Council of Agriculture, resolutions, financial statements, reports of committees, briefs, and policy statements (1920-1926); documents of an appeal to the federal Cabinet against increases of freight rates (1918); and a report on the activities of the Council, 1925-1930.
Administrative History
The Canadian Council of Agriculture was formed in 1909. It was initially a council of delegates from the United Farmers of Alberta, the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association, the Manitoba Grain Growers' Association, and the Dominion Grange, which was based in Ontario. It was later expanded to include representatives from farmers' organizations in other provinces and representatives from farmers' cooperative enterprises. The Council met to coordinate the political and advocacy initiatives of provincial farmers' organizations. It was instrumental in forming the Progressive Party, an influential coalition in the Dominion Parliament of the 1920s. The Council met two or three times a year, and had a secretariat based in Winnipeg. Henry Wise Wood of Alberta served as its president for several years. It became inactive around 1932, and its function was supplanted by the Canadian Chamber of Agriculture, founded in 1935.
Custodial History
The files were retained by United Farmers of Alberta representatives on the Council.

The fonds consists of minutes of the annual meeting (1938, 1950), minutes of the Directors' meeting (1950), resolutions considered and passed by the Western Agricultural Conference (1950), and addresses to the annual meeting by the Rt. Hon. James G. Gardner and Prof. John Kenneth Galbraith (1950).
Administrative History
In 1935 representatives of the provincial farmers' organizations of the four western provinces met as the Western Agricultural Conference. They agreed that because the Canadian Council of Agriculture had become inactive, there was a need for a new national farmers' organization. The Canadian Chamber of Agriculture was organized in Toronto later that year. Like its predecessor, it was a federation of provincial farm organizations and producers' groups, formed largely for the purpose of advocacy. The Western Agricultural Conference and the Eastern Agricultural Conference (established in 1939) continued to meet annually as divisions of the Chamber to deal with regional concerns. Around 1940 the Chamber changed its name to Canadian Federation of Agriculture. In the 2010s it continued to be the major agricultural advocacy organization of Canada.
