CropLife Canada

Pesticide Advocacy, Crop Bio-Tech Advocacy


Although many aspects of the plant science industry have evolved since our organization was first established in 1952, our main purpose remains the same — to advance the collective interests of the agricultural industry in Canada.

With pesticides and modern plant breeding, the plant science industry makes significant social, economic and environmental contributions. Our organization’s primary focus is on providing tools to help farmers be more productive and more sustainable, but we also develop products for use in a wide range of non-agricultural settings, including urban green spaces, public health settings and transportation corridors.

CropLife Canada is a part of CropLife International, an international trade association of agrochemical companies founded in 2001. It was previously known as Global Crop Protection Federation and started out as International Group of National Associations of Manufacturers of Agrochemical Products in 1967. Its members include the world’s largest agricultural biotechnology and agricultural pesticide businesses namely BASF, Bayer CropScience, Corteva, FMC Corp., Sumitomo and Syngenta. The international body combines several national-level or continent-wide organisations, each one having the same goals but differing according to local language and customs.
