Note: Re Canada Requirements under Seeds Act


There are no import requirements under the Seeds Act & Regulations for lots of 50 g. However, there may be import requirements under the Plant Protection Act which are largely dependent on the type of seed being imported and the country of origin.

Guidelines on material that requires a permit and other import requirements can be found at:

The import office staff would be able to provide clarification on specific products when you know what type of seed you want to import. Information on contacting the import permit office can be found at:

Note...I have spoken to Victor at 1-888-732-6222. They look after all the plant material coming in from Thunder Bay to Victoria. A very helpful and knowledgeable person!
