Animal and vegetable oils, the fourth category, represented only two per cent of Canada's total agricultural exports. Comparison A comparison of cereal grain and oilseed exports by country reveals the importance of Canadian commodities in inter- national trade. Canadian exports of wheat and flour, ond only to the U.S., represented 20 per cent of the world trade in tliese commodites in 1970. France was the leading barley exporting nation and Canada was second, supplying 29 per cent of the world market. Exporting 15 per cent of the world's oat requirements, Canada's position was second only to the United States. The U.S.S.R. was the major rye exporter; Camada was again second, supplying 24 per cent of the world demand'. However, Canada was a leading exporter of oilseeds. In 1970 Canada captured 78 per cent of the international flaxseed market and shipped 60 per cent of the world requirements for rapeseed and mustard seed. The importance of agricultural exports to the Canadian economy can't be overlooked. Markets for Canada's products deserve expansion; it is only through continued market development and product promotion that this can be achieved. WHAT WE'VE ADDED!
