Webinar description:  
Innovation in food isn’t something new. In fact, humans have been working to improve food for thousands of years. This portion of the webinar will review the evolution of tools used by plant breeders to help improve crops, describing modern tools in the context of conventional ones. The webinar will review various applications and benefits including improved nutritional qualities. You will also learn how regulatory agencies such as Health Canada consider the safety of food derived from crops that have been improved by plant breeding, including modern breeding techniques like genetic modification and gene editing. Finally, the webinar will discuss how the plant science industry maintains several stewardship and transparency initiatives to complement Government of Canada regulations helping to increase public awareness of plant breeding and address market information needs.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Plant breeding and how modern breeding tools such as gene editing are used within the context of plant breeding
  • The key considerations government agencies take into account in conducting risk assessments
  • The importance of stewardship and transparency

Speakers:  Jennifer Hubert, MSc (CropLife Canada) and Dominique Michaud, PhD (Université Laval)

Moderator: James House, PhD (University of Manitoba)
