Domestic Movement Restrictions on Canadian Grapevine Material
There have been some recent issues with producers importing grapevines from Eastern Canada without the proper documentation and treatments required by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). This has resulted in reguatory actions to help prevent the introduction of invasive pests that could adversely affect the industry.
This is a reminder that all plants and plant parts of all species, hybrids, horticultural varieties and cultivars of Vitis spp. moving from an area in Canada known to be infested with grape phylloxera, Daktulosphaira vitifoliae, and nematodes of the following genera: Longidorus, Trichodorous and Xiphinema, into British Columbia, must be accompanied by a Movement Certificate issued by the CFIA. All of this material is required to be treated with a CFIA approved treatment prior to movement.
If you wish to source grapevine material from outside of B.C., please contact your local CFIA office to get details on the shipping requirements.
