Let's see what
we can grow!
Seeds Canada is the leading voice of the Canadian seed sector, representing seed growers, analysts, breeders, distributors, processors and all actors along the seed value chain coast to coast. Seeds Canada officially launched on February 1, 2021, following the amalgamation of four partner organizations - Canadian Plant Technology Agency, Commercial Seed Analysts Association of Canada, Canadian Seed Institute, and the Canadian Seed Trade Association. Our mandate is to support the growth of the seed sector in Canada and worldwide, focusing on plant breeding innovation, seed regulatory modernization, international trade, value creation, and plant breeders’ rights. Together as Seeds Canada, we can accomplish things that we never could have done separately. We will provide efficient, effective and timely services – and we will continue to grow, as members, through meaningful professional development.
