Certification Body Information

The Fraser Valley Organic Producers Association (FVOPA) was established in March, 2001 as an Incorporated Society in the Province of British Columbia. FVOPA is a self-sustaining organic certifier that provides organic certification services to an ISO (International Standards Organization) Guide 65 compliant program that is acceptable to all jurisdictions.

FVOPA provides certification services within the Province of BC, as well as other regions of Canada and our certification provides access to the global marketplace. FVOPA is a certifier of all stages of organic production (including farms in transition to organic) : Farm crops, livestock (including dairy), poultry, egg grading, greenhouses, mushrooms, processing facilities, handling, distributors, wholesalers, retailers and restaurateurs.

FVOPA certification includes organic product labeling. Operations certified by FVOPA ISO 65 compliant program may label their organic product with theBC official checkmark, which is comprised of the prescribed phrase "British Columbia Certified Organic" and the symbol "checkmark in a box".

FVOPA certified operators are authorised to label their products as “ Organic” and may use the accompanying Canada Organic logo. Under the terms of the Canada/US Equivalency Arrangement FVOPA certified operators may also label their organic products with the USDA seal. Both logos are permitted on organic product labels in either country providing the organic content of the product is 95% or more and the usage guidelines are adhered to. Operations certified by FVOPA can ship products out of BC to any province in Canada, to the USA, Europe and Asia. FVOPA is also recognized by CARTV which manages the Quebec organic agri-food industry.

FVOPA contracts Verification Officers (Inspectors) who are trained and fully qualified Inspector members of the International Organic Inspectors Association (IOIA). This is the body, recognized by the COABC and ISO 65, as being responsible for training and upgrading of Verification Officers under the CAN/CGSB.

As a leading advocate for sustainable agriculture, FVOPA is actively involved in community activities, and providing support and information to its membership through regular Board meetings, dissemination of information, and through membership of other associations such as the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) and the Canadian Organic Trade Association (COTA).

FVOPA accepts applications from large or small operations throughout the year.
