Government & Industry Affairs Director, Bayer Canada Crop Science Division
Trish Jordan is passionate about agriculture, farmers and enhancing agricultural awareness with the non-farming public.
In her current Government & Industry Affairs role with Bayer Crop Science Canada, Trish engages with key farm, industry and provincial government stakeholders to advocate for modern agriculture and Bayer’s business and she works collaboratively with these same stakeholders to solve issues that impede access to innovation in agriculture.
Prior to assuming this role in January 2020, Trish lead Public & Industry Affairs for 19 years where she was responsible for media relations, issues management, and providing strategic communications support to core business activities. She also managed corporate giving activities, farmer and industry relations and the company’s efforts to share the story of modern agriculture with Canadian consumer audiences.
Trish has spent her entire 37-year career working in agriculture and held previous roles with Alberta Wheat Pool; the Canadian Foodgrains Bank; and the Canadian Wheat Board before joining Monsanto Canada in January 2001.
Trish donates her time to several boards and committees, including Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba, the Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame, Cereals Canada, and Clean Farms. In 2013, she was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her leadership in agriculture; advocacy for innovation and competitiveness; and her commitment to community service. When not working, Trish is an avid competitive golfer and passionate curler. She also enjoys NFL Football, curling up with a good book, and spending time visiting friends on the farm.
