The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is responsible for the federal Seed Potato Certification Program.

The objective of the Seed Potato Certification Program is to supply Canadian growers of seed, table stock and processing potatoes with certified seed which is of high varietal integrity and is relatively free of tuber borne diseases. The legal bases of the Seed Potato Certification Program are the Seeds Act and the Seeds Regulations Part II.
