Regulation and Standards – Re-exporting Grain from Canada

What if the grain is to be re-exported from Canada?

Once traded beyond the first point of delivery, we address the grain transaction under the Grain Commercial module on this website. For any grain or seed that is going to be re-exported from Canada, it is the exporter’s responsibility to ensure the commodity meets the import requirements of the destination country. Commodity-specific export requirements may be available by contacting local CFIA offices or by verifying these through import permits issued by the importing country or by contacting the official national plant protection organization in the importing country.  In most cases, once a grain shipment has been cleared by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) on behalf of the CFIA, it can move within Canada. In cases where an import permit was required, the importer is still obligated to follow all conditions set out in an import permit. A list of local CFIA contacts is available at the following link:
