Invitation to Participate in a Seed Regulatory Modernization Survey

May 4, 2020

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is proposing to modernize the Seeds Regulations with industry participation, as part of its 2019–2021 Forward Regulatory Plan.

To ensure that your views are represented in these consultations, we will be seeking your input and feedback on some of the key questions that may emerge as the Seed Regulatory Modernization (SRM) Working Group begins its work. This questionnaire is just the first in a series to ensure that your views are heard throughout the SRM process.

The ultimate goal is a seed certification system that adds maximum value, contributes to the well-being of the system and its stakeholders, and is as cost effective as possible.

We encourage you to submit your completed survey by the end of May. However, we understand that this is a busy time of year for members and the survey will remain open until the end of June.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mike Scheffel or Lakshana Mahabir should you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your time and engagement.
