Canada Organic

Certication is the process used to ensure that organic products are in line with the Canadian Organic Standards (COS).

Canada’s Organic Products Regulations legally require organic products to be certied according to the COS if they are traded across provincial or international borders or use the Canada Organic Logo.

It takes a producer up to three years to transition to the production and sale of certied organic products. During the transition phase, products can still be sold, but not as certied organic.

If producers can prove that no prohibited substances have been used on the property in the last three years, it can take a minimum of 15 months to achieve certication.
