The purpose of this document is to seek broad stakeholder feedback on a proposed revision to the Weed Seeds Order of the Seeds Act. This consultation document incorporates feedback and science advice received thus far, and formulates the basis of a new Weed Seeds Order. The results of this consultation, including comments received, will be incorporated into the Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement and the regulatory change process leading to pre-publication in Canada Gazette, Part I.

Your participation in this consultation will help the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) better understand your views and concerns. The ability of the CFIA to maintain an efficient, effective and responsive plant program regulatory framework is largely dependant on a strong consultative framework. Feedback is solicited from traditional seed program stakeholders and also invited from Canadians with specific expertise in weed and invasive plants, and with crop-type and regional perspectives.
