Soil is the foundation of organic.

When you choose organic you act as cultivator, advocator, and supporter for organic in Canada.

What is organic?

Organic encourages practices that increase biodiversity and reduce negative environmental impacts, while also supporting animal health and welfare. If it is a seed, animal feed, or human food in Canada, it must meet the regulated legal standards of the Canada Organic Regime (COR).
The Canadian Organic Standards prohibit:
✔️ hydroponics
✔️ synthetic fertilizers and toxic, synthetic pesticides;
✔️ genetic engineering (GMOs) in seed, feed, and ingredients;
✔️ artificial colours, flavours, and preservatives;
✔️growth hormones, routine use of antibiotics, and animal cloning;
✔️ irradiation;
✔️ sewage sludge; and more.


Products with 95% or Greater Organic Content:
Multi-ingredient products that contain 95% or more organic ingredients may be labelled as organic and may display the Canada Organic logo.

Two provinces have organic logos for products that are grown or processed within those provinces. In order to use these logos, operators in Quebec and British Columbia must comply with the applicable provincial organic regulations. 

Canadian store shelves carry many products which display organic logos other than the Canada Organic logo. This is often facilitated by equivalency arrangements, which Canada currently has with seven other countries: USA, Costa Rica, European Union, Japan, Switzerland, Taiwan, and United Kingdom.

Together we can encourage the universal
adoption of organic in homes, businesses and communities
