Organic products are regulated under the Organic Product Regulations pursuant to the Canada Agricultural Products Act.

For specific information on organic labelling requirements, refer to Organic Claims.

The Organic Products Regulations state, if the organic logo appears on the label of containers of imported produce, the declaration of the country of origin must be immediately preceded by the words "Product of", or "Imported" which must appear in close proximity to the logo. However, the declaration of "Imported" alone does not fulfil the "country of origin" requirement under the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Regulations. See Country of Origin - Fresh Fruit and Vegetables for fresh fruit and vegetables grown in a country other than Canada for more information.
