About Us

The Canadian Corn Pest Coalition (CCPC) is a collaborative group of corn experts promoting the proper stewardship of corn pest management technologies.

Our members are committed to the common goal of responsibly deploying and managing new pest management technologies for corn as they are introduced in Canada to support their continued effectiveness.

The CCPC was formed in 1997 with the introduction of Bt corn. We bring together industry leaders in corn breeding, experts in entomology, insect resistance management, pathology, and agronomy, and regulatory bodies.


Our members include representatives from:

• the seed corn industry
• grower associations
• regulatory agencies
• academic institutions
• extension and research staff from federal and provincial governments
