Note: It is well recognized that the risk of invasive species in Canada is a shared risk and therefore a shared responsibility among government jurisdictions and stakeholders. Once an invasive plant is determined to be a pest and is introduced into Canada, the CFIA develops and enforces domestic regulatory measures to mitigate the risks associated with the plant species. The CFIA's approach for domestic regulation is based on the principles of: most up-to-date science during the Pest Risk Assessment, shared responsibility and partnerships with provinces and industry stakeholders, consultation and regular review.
