Partners in Innovation was founded by a group of leading Canadian farmer and agricultural organizations which joined forces to support Canadian government legislation intended to improve Plant Breeders’ Rights (PBR) in Canada.
Partners in Innovation believe that amended Plant Breeders’ Rights legislation will foster investment in seed research and innovation, to deliver varieties developed in Canada and outside our border, and to benefit farmers and the Canadian economy. The partnership is committed to supporting the amendments.
