The CFIA is gradually introducing services online. Sign up for My CFIA to submit, manage and track an application for the following permission:
Import Permit: Plants and Plant Products
Note: The CFIA would like to announce that the current plant health import permit application, form CFIA/ACIA 5256, has been updated. The form number, CFIA/ACIA 5256, and its title, Application to Import Plants and Other Things under the Plant Protection Act, remain unchanged, however, its content, the methods by which it can be submitted, and how credit cardholder data can be provided, have been updated.
These changes are geared towards the digital transition that the agency is undergoing.
As of June 1, 2019, importers applying for an import permit under the Plant Protection Act, can submit their application electronically to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, without having to submit a hard copy.
