blueberries certified organic by FVOPA









The Canada Organic Standards are comprised of two documents:

1. General Principles and Management Standards - CAN/CGSB-32.310 - 2015, amended 2018


2. Permitted Substances Lists (PSL) CAN/CGSB-32.311 - 2015, amended 2018 


The Certified Organic Associations of BC (COABC) adopted the Canada Organic Standard as the standard for the BC Certified Organic Program as of June 30, 2009 when the Canada Organic Standards and Regulations were implemented nationally. 

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.
