Policy & Advocacy Priorities

We advocate for a risk and science-based model of plant breeding that fosters innovation for Canadian plant breeders.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is modernizing Seeds Regulations as they apply to seeds imported, conditioned, stored, tested, labelled, exported and sold in Canada.
We are active internationally on behalf of our members.
We’re committed to increasing investment in plant breeding.
We’re working to safeguard new seed varieties by enforcing legislation protecting Plant Breeders’ Rights.
