A Reply From Our Minister of Agriculture

Quote: 134494

Dear Ms. Carter:

 

Thank you for your email regarding the design of the Canada Organic logo. I appreciate your interest in the Organic Products Regulations and your suggestions regarding the graphic design of the logo. I note that you have also written to Mr. Michel Saumur, National Manager of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) Canada Organic Office.

 

As you may know, the logo design was developed through public consultations held in 2006 and in February 2009. The logo was chosen from the thousands of submissions received during the consultations. Since the logo was first chosen, it has been modified slightly to ensure that both the English and French wording appear along the lateral edges as opposed to the English appearing on the top and the French on the bottom. You may wish to view the modified logo on the CFIA website at www.inspection.gc.ca/english/fssa/orgbio/orgbioe.shtml.

 

Again, thank you for writing. Input from Canadians is tremendously valuable to me.

 

Sincerely,

Gerry Ritz, PC, MP
