Plant and Plant Product Imports
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency regulates the imports of products such as:
- forestry commodities
- grains and field crops
- horticulture commodities
- plants with novel traits
Some plants and plant products must also meet the requirements of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
The CFIA also has several programs and services for commercial importers. These include:
- Automated Import Reference System (AIRS)
- Import Service Centre
- International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures
- Info Kit for Brokers
