In June, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency published new compensation regulations to cover the losses of nursery producers, wholesale, retail, landscape and private property owners in cases where the CFIA ordered plants destroyed in the effort to eradicate Phytophthora ramorum (P. ramorum or Sudden Oak Death).
In June, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency published new compensation regulations to cover the losses of nursery producers, wholesale, retail, landscape and private property owners in cases where the CFIA ordered plants destroyed in the effort to eradicate Phytophthora ramorum (P. ramorum or Sudden Oak Death).

The goal of the Phytophthora Ramorum Compensation Regulations is to encourage industry members to promptly report serious plant diseases and pests, and to facilitate compliance with eradication and control activities. If P. ramorum were to spread unimpeded, it could have devastating consequences on Canada’s nursery and landscape industries.

The compensation provided in these regulations matches the financial assistance available to primary producers through the Canadian Agricultural Income Stabilization (CAIS) Program.

Applications for compensation must be submitted on or before Dec. 31, 2010.
