Solving the Mystery - Part I: Canadian Organic Standards 101

Monday, November 27, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM   

Do you find Canadian Organic Standards a bit mysterious and complicated? This workshop will provide an overview of the nuts and bolts of the Canadian Organic Regime, how the Organic Products Regulations relates, and the work of the Standards Interpretation Committee. More importantly, we will teach you how to maneuver through the Standards with confidence. Important sections will be pulled out and discussed, such as Section 4 on the organic plan and resulting requirements of record keeping. Whether you are a seasoned organic operator or a new entrant, you'll leave with a better understanding of how all these components work together, and their impact on your practices! There will be time for Q & A at the end.
