COTA protects organic by playing an active role in standard-setting and industry priority-setting, as well as influence on important regulatory issues.

COTA places a premium on its relationship with Canada’s government in Ottawa, and takes a leadership role on behalf of the organic sector to ensure our stakeholders and their needs are heard by policymakers.
