The British Columbia Broiler Hatching Egg Commission
The British Columbia Broiler Hatching Egg Commission was formed in 1988 under the British Columbia Natural Products Marketing Act. We currently have 52 registered hatching egg producers in BC and 7 registered pullet growers. The Commission works under the Canadian Hatching Egg producers (CHEP) who represents 300 farmers from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. Canadian hatching egg producers yield 80% of Canada's required hatching eggs.
The Commission's Board consists of an Independent Chair, appointed by Cabinet, and four elected producer members:
