Users can search by crop kind; variety name and by the type of PBR protection but using the search boxes below.
Note that if PBR was applied for after February 27, 2015, under the new Act, they have provisional protection, so only the ’91 mark is used. If they applied before February 27, 2015, but have not yet been granted, we use the ’91 mark with pending because they don’t have provisional protection, but they will be protected under PBR 91.
*Please note, under both UPOV’78 and UPOV’91, parental lines of a hybrid variety can be protected, which results in the extension of PBR protection to the hybrid cross. As such, hybrid varieties of certain crop kinds, such as canola, may be protected under either UPOV’78 or UPOV’91 and this information will not appear in the database. For all hybrids, we recommend that you contact the Canadian representative directly to ascertain the status of intellectual property on that variety.
