Pesticide labels and registration
All pesticides, including synthetic or natural chemical pesticides and biopesticides must be registered by Health Canada before they can be sold or used in Canada.
The Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada is responsible for registering pesticides in Canada. Once a pesticide is registered, it is given a registration number, also known as a Pest Control Products Number. This number must be on the label of any pesticide sold or used in Canada. Refer to the Pest Management Regulatory Agency website for more information on pesticide registration.
