We are writing to remind you that April 1st is the effective date for changes to the program for 2022.
CanadaGAP wishes to remind program participants and other stakeholders that the CanadaGAP Food Safety Manual for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables and the CanadaGAP Food Safety Manual for Greenhouse Product will not be updated and reissued for 2022. A few minor corrections were made to the manuals heading into the 2022 growing season. These minor corrections do not affect the version number of the manuals. The corrections (tracked changes) are available on the CanadaGAP website at: https://www.canadagap.ca/manuals/downloads/
REMINDER: Even though the CanadaGAP Manuals remain the same for 2022, your own copy of the manual needs to be reviewed annually to confirm that you are maintaining the procedures and/or to reflect any changes in your operation.

Updates to the CanadaGAP website
The CanadaGAP website is updated continuously; this includes the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) which have been updated to reflect current versions of the CanadaGAP program. New questions have also been added to address new, pertinent topics. We invite you to use the FAQs as a primary resource to answer specific questions, as well as to obtain an overview of common questions for all program participants, auditors and other interested parties.
New Certification Options: A reminder that Options E and F (non-GFSI-recognized) are available starting today. For more information, refer to the CanadaGAP communique of March 11, 2022.
