The Canada Organic Standards are comprised of two documents:
- The OFC has also published a series of articles informing the industry of the main changes to the standards between 2015 and 2020.
- The Final Q&As issued by the Standards Interpretation Committee have been updated to comply with the 2020 COS.
- CFIA has published Version 19 of the COR Operating Manual. Here are updated links in English and French.
It is a requirement to obtain a copy of the current Canada Organic Standards to gain an understanding of the Canada Organic Regime before you apply.
