Peel's Prairie Province releases Grain Elevators in Canada books online

Peel's Prairie Provinces, in partnership with the University of Alberta Libraries, has put online the data on grain elevators in Canada collected by the Canadian Grain Commission. The data, beginning in 1912 and ending in 1998, is now freely available online. 

These records contain lists of licensed elevators, their locations and capacity in western and eastern Canada. 

Peel's Prairie Provinces website is dedicated to preserving western Canadian history and Canadian prairie culture. One can find historical newspapers, bibliography of books, directories, and pamphlets online.
