COTA Defend Organic Fund

Over the past several months, the Canada Organic Trade Association has been leading efforts in opposition of proposed changes to the guidance documents of the Seed and Feed Acts which would remove mandatory health and safety assessments for most genetically edited seeds and feeds introduced to Canada. COTA has met several times with Health Canada, the CFIA and Agriculture and Agrifood Canada. They are advocating on behalf of the organic sector, which does not support genetic modification, and on behalf of everyone who believes that GM traceability is important. To help support these efforts, please visit Donate to Defend Organic Fund.
