Canada: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual
Link to report:
In July 2022, the government of Canada published guidelines that reinforce Canada’s product-based approach and provides guidance on how Canada’s Novel Food Regulations are applied to products of plant breeding. The government is now revising regulations for animal feed and environmental release. Publication of revisions is expected in spring 2023. Canada planted approximately 11.3 million hectares of genetically engineered (GE) crops in 2022, mainly canola, soybeans, and corn. Area planted to biotech crops decreased approximately 11 percent from the previous year, driven by a decrease in area planted to canola.
