What is the CCPC currently doing?

The main focus of the CCPC is ongoing proactive stewardship of Bt corn technology in order to delay the development of insect resistance. In order to protect Bt technology, we have developed a comprehensive Insect Resistance Management (IRM) strategy, approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, for Canadian corn growers. Our strategy is to accomplish both our initial mandate and future initiatives including co-operative scientific investigation and successful grower education to promote individual accountability for trait stewardship at all levels of the production chain.

We continue to work together to develop IRM strategies for new Bt corn technologies coming to the market, as well as an extensive education program to help growers better understand the differences in these strategies based on which Bt corn they are planting.
