Default Bringing plants across the border from U.S to Canada...

Hi there,

I am wondering if anyone knows the procedure of bringing plants across the border from U.S.A to Canada. These plants are cutting and some bromeliads, clean and no soil. Hopefully someone can tell me the legall way of doing this.

Thanks!

I wouldn't think that you would run into issues, but I'm by no means a good source on the subject. Is there not a website that has issues like this available from the canadian government?

It sounds like you'll need permits. Check this out. I did one all the way through for bromeliads and it said permits needed.

I would go through the steps of that site. It's kind of confusing and a few options are up for interpretation in my opinion. It should tell you everything you need to know at least as far as the law by the book. The border agents may be lenient though so maybe someone with experience may be able to tell you more.

I think you'll need a phytosanitation certificate, not sure what else. Let us know what you find out.

I bet that if the plants you were attempting to bring over were in small quantity, really clean (no bugs, spots ect) and bare root (ZERO soil), you'd probably not have any issues even without a permit. Play dumb is what I'd do. Its not like you're a big time plant importer, you're a hobbyist. Give it a try...
