Implementation of CFIA Horticulture Plant ListMonday, March 23, 2015 > 11:47:28
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is implementing a new approach to issuing import permits for commonly traded plants intended for planting and propagation. Importers may now apply for permission to import all the plants on a new Horticulture Plant List (HPL) from all countries with a single entry on their import permit application form. The HPL is available on the CFIA’s website at www.inspection.gc.ca/plantlist

Updates to the HPL will be communicated via a new e-mail notification service (listserv) for all notifications related to import permits for plants and plant products. Importers of these products are strongly encouraged to sign up for this notification service.
