Organic claims on food labels
Organic products sold intraprovincially
Organic products sold within the province of origin are not within the scope of Part 13 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations unless the product bears the Canada Organic Logo. At the federal level, these are subject to the Food and Drugs Act and the Safe Food for Canadians Act, which prohibit false or misleading claims in labelling and advertising. Producers of intraprovincially traded products bearing organic claims are expected to be able to demonstrate that the product is organic.
All organic products bearing the Canada organic logo, including those sold intraprovincially, must comply with Part 13 of the SFCR.
Provincial organic regulations also exist in some provinces. Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Manitoba and British Columbia currently have organic certification systems in place.
