Canada's Seed Industry

The seed industry thrives in a regulatory and intellectual property environment that encourages investment in innovation so that farmers have access to the best products. Canada’s seed system delivers high-quality seed products to customers here and around the world.

Seed Protection

Seeds Canada’s goal is to promote an environment where a robust and globally competitive framework of intellectual property protection is valued and respected. We strive to encourage continued research investment and sustainable innovation for the benefit of Canadian growers, consumers, and the plant science industry.

Seeds Canada supports the protection of intellectual property and strives to change behaviour through:

  • Monitoring of the marketplace
  • Enforcing Plant Breeders Rights
  • Bringing the industry together, pooling resources and efforts to respond to challenges of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) fairly and effectively
