First release of the Monthly Report:

This marks the start of a new schedule for the Grain Monitoring Program’s (GMP) reporting. The move to monthly reporting fulfills the government’s commitment to provide more timely updates on the state of Western Canadian grain transportation. This first monthly report covers the 2014-15 crop year to date – from August 2014 to January 2015. Going forward we will strive to issue the monthly reports 30 - 35 days following the end of each month. Please click on the “get the latest reports” button to access the January 2015 Report.

This new format will include measures that are relevant to the particular month or period. Highlights and events of interest to stakeholders will also be featured.

Monthly reports will be accessible here on the Grain Monitor’s website ( www.grainmonitor.ca ). Annual Reports will continue to be produced and published to this website. Production of Quarterly Reports will cease, although the Data Tables will include a quarterly aggregation for each measure for continuity.

New measures

Following changes in the mandate of the GMP, some new measures have been added:

  • The GMP will now measure the movement of Western Canadian grain by rail to the US, Mexico and Eastern Canadian destinations as well as the movement by rail of US grain to Canadian destinations. Ultimately, this will include performance measures on car cycles and loaded transit times.
  • The railway fleet size in grain service and railway loads-on-wheels will be included.
  • The time port terminals are staffed and out of cars to unload (unproductive time) will be reported.
  • The measurement of rail car order fulfillment is still in development.

Access to the Grain Monitoring Data Tables

The GMP’s foundation remains the data received from industry stakeholders. The measures derived from this data will be published on our website monthly. These will continue to be provided in Excel format using the same table series that has become familiar to those using the data.

The Data Tables for the 2013-14 Annual Report are now available. Click on the “get the latest reports” button to access them. The GMP 2013-14 Annual Report will be forthcoming.

Access to past editions and historical data

Past editions of the GMP Reports, Data Tables, Supplemental Studies and Papers will continue to be accessible here.

We hope you find this new format and information useful. As always, questions and comments regarding the measures and data are welcomed by the Quorum staff.
