The CWB's new elevator in Pasqua will feature a car-loading rate of up to 1,600 tonnes per hour, a 134-car loop track and cleaning facilities.

CWB (formerly the Canadian Wheat Board) is starting construction on a third grain elevator, this one located near Pasqua, Sask., just east of Moose Jaw.

This spring, CWB committed about $35 million to build two new terminals - one near Portage la Prairie, the other near Saskatoon.

"Today’s Pasqua announcement has once again strategically expanded CWB’s footprint on the Prairies," said CWB president and CEO Ian White.

He said the location adjacent to the CP line and with easy road access is a prime location in the middle of a high production area and with the ability to ship grain both east and west as well as to the south.

The elevator will feature a car-loading rate of up to 1,600 tonnes per hour, a 134-car loop track and cleaning facilities.

CWB also announced that it has begun the hiring process for these facilities as well as for other elevator locations yet to be announced.

"CWB is on an exciting path of growth, and now it’s time to further expand our staffing on the grain handling side to accommodate our growth trajectory," said White.
