Ottawa, ON – On May 27, 2022, the Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) received a request from the Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) for a mid-year increase to the farmgate price of milk due to the current inflationary environment. According to the request, this increase would come into effect on September 1, 2022, and would be deducted from any price increase that may result from the routine price review in the fall of 2022.

In response to this request, the CDC Board will consult stakeholders between June 13 and 15, 2022. Its decision will be announced in the days following these consultations.
