The Canadian Cattlemen Market Development Council (CCMDC) is pleased to provide stakeholders with an independent, third party examination of the allocation of the Canadian Beef and Cattle Market Development Fund over its 10-year lifespan. Also known as the Legacy Fund, the Canadian Beef and Cattle Market Development Fund was established in 2005 when the Governments of Canada and Alberta committed $80 million ($50 million and $30 million respectively) to the industry to support long-term market development of the beef, beef cattle and genetics industries following the detection of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in Canada in 2003.
