Health Canada, Pesticide and Pest Management

Through the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), Health Canada works closely with growers of food and non-food crops as well as other commercial users of pesticides, to help meet their needs and priorities for pest management. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency has a number of programs for this purpose, including the Grower Requested Own Use Program, projects under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Technical Working Group on Pesticides, Sustainable Pest Management Program and the Minor Use Program. 

Some useful links that can be accessed through their program are:
