Simple Tip #5:
Deliver What You Declare

The Declaration of Eligibility affidavit is a legally binding document and any incorrect information, intentional or unintentional, can be traced back to the farm and individuals can be held liable for the costs associated with contamination of a bin or shipment.

When you sign the mandatory Declaration at the elevator, you are making a legal assertion that your crop is the variety and/or class you have designated and that it was not treated with the crop input products specified in the declaration.

Declarations of Eligibility have changed effective August 2020 as part of Canada’s commitments under the CUSMA. Farmers should take time to review updated Declarations and be aware of how the changes may affect your operation.
