We have many customers in Canada and successfully ship many packages across the border every day. We always recommend checking with CIFA regarding items you are ordering, particularly if you are placing a large order. Generally, quantities of small vegetable seeds (lettuce, tomato, kale) weighing less than 500g (seed weight not package weight), and large seeds (bean, corn, squash) weighing less than 1kg meet the 'small lot' import exemption and require no additional documentation. However, for very large orders, or in the case of certain vegetable types sent to certain provinces (for example, corn to BC), a Phytosanitary Certificate may be required. While these situations are rare, we advise checking CIFA for regulatory information before placing your order, as at this time we cannot provide a phytosanitary certificate.
Due to increasingly stringent laws surrounding the import of even small quantities of seed to many countries, in particular to the EU countries, we are unable to ship seed or plant orders to countries other than the US and Canada. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We do continue to make international shipments of items in our catalog that are not seeds or plants.
