The intent of the database is to assist stakeholders along the value chain to easily identify Plant Breeder’s Rights protection on crop varieties registered for sale in Canada. The information contained in the database is provided for general information purposes only. Every effort has been made to ensure the information is accurate, current and reliable; however, please contact the Canadian Food Inspection’s Variety Registration Office or the Plant Breeders’ Rights Office with specific questions pertaining to variety registration and any final verifications for plant breeders’ rights status.
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, all varieties have provisional protection, so the ’91 trademark with pending is used. Once protection has been granted, then ’91 trademark is used and those varieties will be protected under PBR 91.
