Canadian grain producers will see changes to grain delivery declarations for the 2022-2023 crop year.
Starting July 1 in eastern Canada and Aug. 1 in western Canada, declarations of eligibility will be required across the country. Only grains subject to variety registration based on quality considerations will require a declaration. As a result, certain grains will no longer need to be declared under regulation. This change has come after consultations with stakeholders.
Previously, the declaration of eligibility requirement applied to all grains regulated by virtue of the Canada Grain Act and only applied to western Canada.
By requiring information on variety registration at the time of delivery, declarations help to preserve the integrity of the Canadian grain quality system. The declaration form confirms that the variety delivered, bought, and sold is eligible for the kind of grain and class.
