The paper provides an overview of the main arguments for and against the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) and its efficiency. The paper relates that although the CWB's costs are subject to dispute, there are very few strong comprehensive arguments for the benefits of the CWB. The paper reveals that with pressure from Alberta to start a pilot voluntary participation program, it would seem the CWB is on its way out as the sole marketer of Western Canadian wheat and barley.

From the Paper:

"The CWB, originally founded in 1919 to market post-war government grain reserves, has been under the magnifying glass in recent years. While it can be said that in the past its development and operation benefited society, it is not so clear today.
"In 1935, during the depression, the CWB helped to protect and guarantee investments, and later during World War II it became a mandatory membership body in order to control inflation. In the middle of the century it did have some success, but today many if not all of its policies are seen as outdated bureaucracy by many."
