Plant Gene Resources of Canada: Foreign Requests for Germplasm

The Canadian National Plant Germplasm System distributes germplasm to non-Canadian requesters in compliance with federal quarantine regulations and restrictions of Canada and the recipient country.

The requester MUST provide an import permit (IP), when required, with English translation. If possible, the IP should be open dated. This assists us in resending material that did not survive original shipment. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) plant inspector can provide the phytosanitary certification only after we have received the required IP from the requesting country. Whenever possible, please send or FAX a copy of the IP with the original plant request.
