Canadian Pesticide Registration:
From Lab to Label


If you would you like a better understanding of what pesticides are, why they are used and how they are regulated to ensure they are safe, join CropLife Canada for the Lab to Label webinar. Pesticides, and their safety, can be complex topics to explain but we can help by providing you with a look at how a pesticide goes from being discovered in the lab to becoming a registered product in Canada, and why Canadians can feel confident in the safety of these products.

This webinar is also approved for one CEC in Alberta in the General Information category. To qualify for this credit, you must attend the webinar for one hour and answer the quiz at the end.
