Ongoing strategic planning and investments ensure Canpotex is well positioned to serve the growing potash needs of its customers.

Our Story

On the surface, the Canpotex story is about potash exports and the development of a marketing and logistics system that has changed the way the world views Saskatchewan exporters. At its heart, however, Canpotex is a story about people.

Canpotex's growth and success is attributed to relationships – from the dedication and commitment of our employees, shareholders and suppliers, to the trust and loyalty of our customers.

Farmer education, market development and a hands-on approach to customer service are key to our core values as a company.

As one of the world's premier potash exporters, our logistics and delivery network – which includes bulk cargo vessels, storage facilities and thousands of specialized railcars – is a significant part of our operations.

Canpotex has sold approximately 215 million tonnes of high-quality potash to over 60 countries since making its first sale in 1972.
