Background

Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance

The Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance (CHTA) is a non-profit, national organization that promotes Canadian hemp and hemp products globally. Established in 2003, the Alliance represents those involved in Canada’s hemp industry. Members include farmers, processors, manufacturers, researchers, entrepreneurs and marketers. 

The members are what drive the industry. As a sector, hemp has been fortunate to have some key players that have recognized the importance of having a national body that can represent the interests of this very diverse crop.  

The key functions of the CHTA are to disseminate information, promote the use of nutritional and industrial hemp and coordinate research.  

The CHTA’s mission is to create an economically sustainable Canadian hemp industry, benefitting all stakeholders along the value chain, and enhancing the nation’s health and natural environment.
