Executive summary

The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is the primary international treaty for protecting the world's natural and cultivated plant resources from plant pests and for facilitating the safe movement of $1.1 trillion worth of plants and plant products in international trade.

The CFIA IPPC Annual Reports highlight the significant contribution the CFIA has made to the IPPC during a specific year.

Throughout the year, the CFIA participates in various IPPC activities, both in person and virtually.

The annual reports provide an overview of CFIA's international engagement which contributes to achieving Canada's objectives under the IPPC, including activities related to the North American Plant Protection Organization (NAPPO) and the Plant Health Quads (PH Quads), and bilateral engagement with the United States, the European Union, China and India.

As well, the reports highlight current IPPC challenges and priorities, including the strategic direction and the leadership role that CFIA intends to play on these issues. In view of different countries' objectives, one key challenge is the continued need to promote the adoption of IPPC standards that are based on risk analysis, and scientific information and evidence.
