This page provides access to a database linking to regulatory decisions issued under the Seeds Act and Regulations and/or Feeds Act and Regulations for Plant and novel traits and novel feeds from plant sources respectively. These results also provide information about the approval status under variety registration and use as a novel food.

Plants in Canada are regulated on the basis of the traits expressed and not on the basis of the method used to introduce the traits. Novel Plant Products may be produced by conventional breeding, mutagenesis or recombinant DNA techniques. Please refer to the specific Decision Documents for more details on specific approvals. Information on novel trait introduction methods can be found in Decision Documents for each specific Plant with Novel Traits (PNT) and or novel feed from plant sources that has been approved - accessed by a direct link within the table of results.
