Four seed sector organizations have all voted in favour of amalgamation to become one new, national organization.

Seeds Canada will become a reality on February 1, 2021.

The four amalgamating organizations are the Canadian Plant Technology Agency; the Commercial Seed Analysts Association of Canada; the Canadian Seed Institute; and the Canadian Seed Trade Association.

The inaugural Seeds Canada board includes 15 directors from across the country.

The goal is for Seeds Canada’s membership to include national and provincial seed associations, as well as seed growers from across Canada.
