CropLife Canada hires Terri Stewart

Terri Stewart, director, science and regulatory affairs, for chemistry, CropLife Canada

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency’s (PMRA) loss is CropLife Canada’s gain. Terri Stewart, who has headed the PMRA’s Agricultural Stakeholder Engagement Unit since July 2018 has been persuaded to build on her 16-year career in a significant move to CropLife Canada. Effective March 4, she will be CropLife’s director of science and regulatory affairs for chemistry.


Dr. Maria Trainer, who has been in the CropLife Canada role for the last seven years, is moving to become director of scientific policy at the Australian Pesticides and Veterinarian Medicines Authority.


In her PMRA career, Ms. Stewart has worked in pre- and post-market regulation first as an evaluator and later as a senior science coordinator which included leading joint reviews. In her most recent role, she had the opportunity to engage on current and emerging re-evaluation issues relevant to the crop protection industry.


Her evident passion started with a University of Guelph Master’s science degree in entomology. Her thesis focussed on control of thrips in greenhouse cucumbers.
