Effective immediately, dicentra will no longer be offering CanadaGAP audits moving forward.


Program participants currently using dicentra for their CanadaGAP certification are advised to transfer to a new certification body as soon as possible.


There are currently five other choices for CanadaGAP certification bodies:




Control Union





NSF Canada Ag



Tel: 1-800-386-5114


Tel: 1-604-988-8484



Tel: 1-778-683-5044


Tel: 1-866-834-2516


Tel: 1-519-318-8314











Certificates issued by dicentra will remain valid until the stated expiry or until the operation has a new certificate issued by their new certification body following a successful audit (whichever is sooner). This is conditional on certified operations continuing to comply with CanadaGAP program requirements.


dicentra clients should transfer to a new certification body sooner than later, using the Change of Status Form.


-  Answer question 4 to indicate your choice of a new certification body.


-  Send the signed form to the CanadaGAP office by mail, email to or fax to 613-829-9379. 


-  Send the form to CanadaGAP ASAP even if your certificate expiry is months away. 


-  CanadaGAP will inform your new certification body of the transfer.


-  Your new certification body will contact you to review the scope of your operation and to confirm the timing of your next audit or self-assessment review.


If you have any questions, please contact the certification bodies listed above, or the CanadaGAP office at or 613-829-4711.
