As part of the consultation held October 23, 2009 to February 15, 2010, several additional species were suggested by stakeholders for listing in the Weed Seeds Order. The CFIA completed a "Request of Biological Information", and in some cases a "Weed Risk Assessment", on these species. As a result, some additional species are now considered for listing.

The CFIA is also consulting on the regulation of weedy plant species under the Plant Protection Act. Stakeholder feedback from this consultation will be considered in a revised Weed Seeds Order.

The National Seed Herbarium (NSH – CFIA Saskatoon Seed Lab) provided feedback regarding the identification of difficult to distinguish species.

CFIA continues to work with the Provinces to co-ordinate the WSO with provincial and regional weed lists.
