Banner forProposed Herbicide MRLs Changes

Last month’s announcement by the Government of Canada that it is hitting pause on the proposed increases to MRLs for pesticide limits on food, including glyphosate until the Spring of 2022 was a bit of a shock for the ag retail industry.

The August 4, 2021 announcement from the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Health, and the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change said that government would reexamine the framework of the Pest Management Regulatory Agency’s (PMRA) review process to strengthen its capacity to conduct said reviews.

CAAR, as the voice of the Canadian agri retail industry, is working on behalf of its constituency and Canadian farmers to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.
