Plant Protection Organizations

The CFIA works with other federal departments and agencies to enhance the knowledge required for policy and standard setting, regulation and program development, regulatory market access agreements, scientific risk assessments, surveillance, intelligence gathering, inspection and scientific risk mitigation. At the provincial level, the CFIA works closely with the ministries of Agriculture, Environment and Forestry. Activities undertaken with these partners mirror those undertaken with federal departments and agencies.

The CFIA works with a number of Canada's trading partners, as well as with international organizations, in an effort to maximize the effectiveness of Canada's legislation and regulations within the international system.
