Shipping between US and Canada


There is a new certification program being put into place in the United
States (by APHIS) and Canada (AAFC) that will allow certified growers in
each country to ship certain "low-risk" plants to the other country without
the need for phytosanitary certificate to accompany each shipment. Certified
operations will be issued a number (to appear on labels) which will take the
place of the phyto.

I don't have complete information yet and am not sure whether the program is
limited to greenhouse grown plants (defined as indoor foliage, flowering
plants and bedding plants) but it's a step in the right direction. Contact
your local APHIS or AAFC office for additional details.
