Projet de Loi pour amender la Loi sur la protection des obtentions végétales

        Texte du projet de loi

Extrait d’un article de commentaire:  http://www.betterfarming.com/online-news/plant-breeders-rights-highlighted-new-federal-legislation-54115
  Among the changes are amendments to the Plant Breeders’ Rights Act to align it with the International Union for Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV ’91). The government’s changes to plant breeders’ rights legislation, proposed to be in place by Aug. 1 2014, will encourage increased plant breeding investment in Canada and encourage foreign breeders to sell their varieties to Canada’s farmers, who will benefit from improved access to innovative new varieties, Ritz says. At the same time the bill “enshrines farmers’ privilege when it comes to saving seeds.” That means farmers’ right to reuse and replant the seed personally saved from crops grown on their own land “is protected under UPOV ’91,” he says.

SOMMAIRE (du projet de loi)
