OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 1, 2006): The Organic Trade Association (OTA) hailed the pre-publication of Canada’s organic regulation in the Canada Gazette (Vol. 140, No. 35, Sept. 2, 2006) as a major milestone toward putting a national organic regulatory system in place.

“The Canadian organic community has been seeking mandatory national organic standards that will ease the way for trade of organic products both within Canada and with other countries,” said Caren Wilcox, OTA’s Executive Director.
