Last week, program participants using SGS Canada were asked to choose a new certification body for their CanadaGAP audits and certification. SGS will not be providing services for CanadaGAP after June 30, 2019.

Did you know that both CanadaGAP-licensed certification bodies, NSF Canada Ag and the BNQ (Bureau de normalisation du Québec), offer bilingual certification services across Canada, and in the United States?

To contact BNQ, call 1-800-386-5114 ext. 2451, email or visit their website at

To contact NSF, call 1-519-821-1246 or visit their website at

If you need to transfer from SGS to BNQ or NSF, please complete the Change of Status Form. Answer question 4 to indicate your choice of a new certification body, and send the signed form to the CanadaGAP office by mail, email to or fax to 613-829-9379.

If you have any questions, contact the certification bodies listed above, or the CanadaGAP office at or 613-829-4711.
