Seeking Stakeholder Input for Canada's Seeds Regulations Modernization Initiative

As part of the seed regulatory modernization (SEED-RM) process, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will be reviewing multiple sections of the Seeds Regulations. The CFIA is looking to update the Seeds Regulations to improve responsiveness and consistency, reduce complexity, become adaptable and flexible to function in the modern fast-changing world, and to protect producers and consumers by strengthening existing requirements.

The first step is a needs assessment survey to establish a baseline understanding of seed and seed potato stakeholder needs to provide important perspective to the process. Visit the CFIA website for more information and to complete the survey before March 15, 2021.
