The BWA was an agreement to sell wheat to British clients at a fixed price over a four-year period. The price was to be adjusted during the following two years, "having regard to" world wheat prices.

The '''Canadian Wheat Board''' ( ) is a marketing board for wheat and barley in Western Canada. Established by the Parliament of Canada on July 5, 1935, its operation was governed by the Canadian Wheat Board Act as a mandatory producer marketing (marketing board) system for wheat and barley in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and a small part of British Columbia. It was illegal for any farmer in areas under the CWB's jurisdiction to sell their wheat and barley through any other channel than the CWB. Although often called a monopoly, it was actually a monopsony since it was the only ''buyer'' of wheat and barley.

Amid criticism, the Canadian Wheat Board's monopsony officially ended on August 1, 2012 as a result of Bill C-18, which was tabled by the Harper government (Premiership of Stephen Harper) and passed in December 2011. The CWB continues to operate as a voluntary marketing organization. This will no longer be an option by 2016, the government imposed deadline for when privatization must occur.
