Seeds Canada Organization Launched
USAgNet - 02/03/2021

Seeds Canada has been launched in an effort to be the leading voice of the Canadian seed sector, helping members succeed and grow in Canada and around the world.

Seed is the vital first link in the agriculture value chain, contributing over $6 billion to the economy, employing more than 63,000 Canadians, and exporting more than $640 million annually. Bringing four seed associations together into one organization will result in stronger advocacy for the seed sector and enhanced services for members and clients.

The Seeds Canada logo represents the four amalgamating organizations joining as one. "The logo serves as a reminder of the efforts it took to get to this point, a celebration of our accomplishments, and a new vision for the future. We are stronger together," said Ellen Sparry, President, Seeds Canada.

The new website, launched today, can be found at Here, you can learn more about Seeds Canada's mission, people, and services. The four amalgamating organizations' websites can still be accessed during this transition period. Seeds Canada will continue to offer all original client and member services.

The operations team, formerly under the Canadian Seed Institute, continues to manage programs and offer client services. Continuing education and the seed analyst SEAL programs are still operational. Other efforts on behalf of members such as trade facilitation, advocacy, intellectual property protection, and more will proceed. All staff remain in place to support our members and clients.
