Get the Certified Advantage

Our website is provided in four sections in order to:

  • help seed growers with the certification of seed crops
  • help plant breeders with the requirements around Breeder seed
  • inform Canadian farmers about the benefits of Canadian Certified seed, and
  • help food processors and end-users understand the benefits and advantages of using ingredients that are grown from Certified seed

If you are a seed grower, click on the “I’m a Seed Grower” section. Here, you can log into your SeedCert account and access regulations, forms, and other seed grower resources.

If you are a plant breeder, please visit our “Breeder Seed” webpage to access the Breeder Seed Requirements, forms related to Breeder seed and other plant breeder resources.

For farmers who want to know more about how Certified seed can be a risk management tool for their farms, our “I’m a Farmer/Retailer” web section provides helpful information. You can also access our online Pedigreed Seed Locator database to search for Certified seed suppliers across Canada.

For food processors and manufacturers, please visit the “I’m a Food Processor” section for information on how Certified seed provides quality ingredients with specific characteristics to improve your food products.
