The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is responsible for the administration of the Seeds Act and Regulations to help to ensure that seeds sold in, imported into and exported from Canada meet established standards for quality and are labelled so that they are properly represented in the marketplace, and are registered prior to sale in Canada (most agricultural crop varieties).
The CFIA's Seed Section is the Registrar for both variety registration and registered seed establishment programs.
