Administrative History of Agricore United

On July 30, 2001, Agricore announced that the boards of both United Grain Growers and Agricore Cooperative had unanimously agreed to a merger that would create a new company, Agricore United, which would be modeled after U.G.G.'s share structure. On November 1, 2001, the merger took place and Agricore, the last of the prairie cooperatives, ceased to exist.

Since the merger, Agricore United became the largest agribusiness in western Canada dealing in grains, oilseeds, special crops, marketing, agri-products, agri-food processing, and feed manufacturing. The merger also allowed for a greater ability to access public markets for additional capital. The company has weathered adverse growing conditions, such as drought and floods in various parts of western Canada, low grain stocks, and growing competition from international markets. While offering farmers management services like financing, risk management, agronomic expertise, and access to end-use markets, Agricore United has been able to capitalize on a wider system of developed infrastructure networks of port terminals, country elevators, and farm service centres.

In 2007, Agricore United was acquired by Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. Together, they formed the foundation of Viterra Inc.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The 2009 accession (A.09-51) consists of material collected by the United Grain Growers library. Following the 2001 merger of UGG and Agricore, the library was donated, along with other archival material, to the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections. The collection has been divided into series and sub-series, and includes records related to acts, by-laws, and amendments (of federal, international, and private bodies) and records about UGG personnel. It includes various publications (including those of the UGG, the federal government, the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, Manitoba Pool Elevators, and the Canadian Wheat Board).

Return to Top


The A.09-51 accession also includes records relating to various commissions and inquiries, including the Royal Commission on Railway Transportation in Canada and the Royal Commission on Transportation, as well as various submissions of the UGG to different commissions and inquiries. The collection contains bound copies of UGG annual reports and UGG News, various reports and submissions by the UGG and by other private and government bodies, and a large series of records related to transportation, including records related to the Western Grain Transportation Act, the Crow Benefit (Crow's Nest Agreement), the Producer Payment Panel, and the Gilson Report.

Finally, the collection includes 1546 slides, 676 photographs, 31 sheets of negatives, 10 VHS tapes, 19 audiocassette tapes, 1 DVD, and 2 CDs, most of which document the activities (including annual meetings) of United Grain Growers Ltd.
