The Canola Council of Canada has the following statement:

The world remains gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic and global supply chains to feed people and animals are more important than ever.   

Canadian and Chinese government officials had a call to discuss the trade in canola seed on March 30.

China has informed Canada that the current trade in canola seed can continue. Canola shipments to China remain blocked as the licenses of two large exporters, Richardson and Viterra, to export canola seed to China remain suspended.

Canada has been shipping about 30% of normal canola seed exports to China since March 2019.
