The Fertilizers Act and regulations requires that all regulated fertilizer and supplement products imported into or sold in Canada must be safe for humans, plants, animals, and the environment. They must also be properly labelled to ensure safe and appropriate use.


The 3 year regulatory transition period (October 26, 2020 to October 26, 2023) has now ended. As a result, regulated parties, including all manufacturers, importers, distributors and sellers of fertilizers and supplements must adhere to the amended Fertilizers Regulations. There are few notable exceptions for some product categories. Learn more about the implementation of the amended Fertilizers Regulations.
