U.S. Grain Shipped to Canada: Can U.S.-origin grain be commingled in a Canadian elevator?
Yes. Grain of U.S. and Canadian origin can be commingled. If graded according to Canadian statutory grades, the commingled grain will receive the lowest official statutory Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) grade for that class. In addition, it can receive a Certificate Final (officially certified at point of export or sale) from the CGC that will read “Mixed Canadian and Foreign Grain” and list the specifications as requested. Mixed origin grain is also eligible for domestic sale and export sale based on U.S. grades and the specifications of the grain.
If U.S.-origin grain is mixed with Canadian, and loses its identity, it may affect its qualifications for Canadian phytosanitary certificate issuance to some countries.
