Biotechnology

 
Policy Statement: The Canadian Canola Growers Association supports the science of biotechnology as it pertains to crop science. CCGA maintains that growers must be able to participate in the development of regulations for the control of the development and marketing of the products of biotechnology, and that these regulations must remain science-based.​
 

 Science-Based System

 
CCGA supports the current Canadian science-based regulatory system for varieties developed using the science of biotechnology. CCGA also supports the voluntary labeling of products to address consumer choice or lifestyle preferences and Health Canada's mandatory labeling guidelines for novel trait products where an allergen has been introduced or where substantial equivalence is not present.

CCGA has advocated against bills aimed at threatening Canada’s science-based variety approval system and implementing mandatory labelling of products derived from products of biotechnology.​
