Government of Canada supporting expanded market opportunities for the organic industry

Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Marie-Claude Bibeau was at Kwantlen Polytechnic University where she highlighted a recent funding announcement of $992,131 for the CanadaOrganic Trade Association.
 
The investment, made under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership's AgriMarketing Program, will support the industry in resolving market access issues, ensuring Canadian organic products remain competitive. The funding will also help create export and domestic opportunities to promote the "Canada Organic" brand.
 
The project includes activities such as attending trade shows, hosting incoming missions, participating at international trade advocacy meetings and creating a retailer training webinar series and manual.
 
The Government of Canada has also recently supported a review of organic standards and has provided program support to the Organic Federation of Canada to help maintain the sector's sustainability.
