Public consultation closed on proposed amendments to novel food regulations


Jun 02, 2021

Health Canada is seeking feedback on two new pieces of guidance for the Novel Food Regulations, focused on plant breeding. Our intent is to ensure the guidance:

  • Provides greater clarity, predictability and transparency regarding the regulation of novel foods derived from plants, including those developed using gene editing technologies.

  • Provides an efficient and predictable pathway to commercialization for new products.

Opened on March 25, 2021 and will close on May 24, 2021.
