An organic product is an agricultural product that has been certified as organic under the Organic Products Regulations (OPR).

The OPR are designed to protect consumers against false and misleading organic claims and to govern the use of the organic logo. All aspects of food labels and advertising contribute to the overall impression a food product makes. Therefore, foods making organic claims must also comply with the General Principles for Labelling and Advertising.

The OPR apply to inter-provincially and internationally traded organic products. For information on organic products sold only within a province, refer to Organic Products Sold Intra-provincially.
