Minister Ritz Announces Dale Johnston as Chairperson of Farm Credit Canada's Board Of Directors

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/14/12 -- Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz today announced the appointment of Dale Johnston as the Chairperson of Farm Credit Canada's (FCC) Board of Directors.

"I'm very pleased to announce that Dale Johnston has agreed to take on the important position of Chairperson of FCC's Board of Directors," said Minister Ritz. "Since joining FCC's Board in 2011, Mr. Johnston's knowledge and passion for agriculture has certainly made a mark on the Board's work. Under his leadership, I'm confident FCC will continue to help the sector make great strides, reaching even higher levels of productivity and profitability in the years to come."

As Canada's leading agricultural lender, FCC is advancing the business of agriculture. With a healthy portfolio of more than $24 billion and 19 consecutive years of portfolio growth, FCC is strong, stable and committed to serving the industry through all business cycles. FCC provides financing, insurance, software, learning programs, and other business services to producers, agribusinesses, and agri-food operations.

Under the Board's leadership, FCC has consistently been a top provider of agriculture financing in Canada. FCC is on the Top 50 Best Employers in Canada list for the 10th consecutive year, recently placing fifth. FCC also gives back to the community, including collecting over 1.4 million pounds of food and $760,000 for local food banks this year as part of FCC's Drive Away Hunger campaign.

Headquartered in Regina, FCC is a Crown corporation that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.

Mr. Johnston's appointment is for a term of three years and is effective immediately. A biographical note for Mr. Johnston is attached.
