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.

Advertisment

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.
For more information about the regulations and how to obtain compensation, visit the CFIA’s website at www.inspection.gc.ca.
