October 19, 2023 – The Canola Council of Canada (CCC) welcomes the tabling of Bill C-359, An Act to amend the Feeds Act, Seeds Act, and Pest Control Products Act (provisional registration and approval), by Kody Blois, Member of Parliament and Chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food. Bill C-359 aims to improve access to new products and innovations for Canadian farmers. The bill establishes a legislative pathway for the provisional approval of products that are new to the Canadian market.
Now, more than ever, we need to support innovation and put tools in the hands of Canadian farmers as we work to feed and fuel the world. Bill C-359 can help bolster Canada’s competitiveness, address global food security and increase the resilience of Canada’s agricultural sector. The CCC encourages all parliamentarians to support this important bill.
