Canada Brand refresh for agriculture and agri-food products

The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, recently unveiled a modern new refresh of the Canada Brand program, plus a digital toolkit to help Canadian agriculture and agri-food businesses showcase their products in global markets.

More modern, flexible, easy-to-use and optimized for digital platforms, the updated Canada Brand program delivers on the industry's need to respond to new market realities in today's digitally-driven marketplace.

The strategy and tools are free to use, and were developed in collaboration with industry and provincial governments, through focus-testing, research, and consultation meetings.

The Canada Brand for Canadian agriculture and agri-food products was launched in 2006 by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and has driven the success of hundreds of Canadian agri-food businesses and associations in global markets. To promote their products to the world, Canadian producers and processors rely on Canada's solid reputation for quality and sustainability.

The Canada Brand program offers members:

    • a new logo, modernized graphics and branded taglines;
    • a revamped marketing toolbox, with:
      • video content;
      • animated graphics, GIFs and digital stickers;
      • refreshed marketing messaging;
      • a revitalized photo library; and
      • a revamped client portal system (for member registration and access to brand assets).

Export-ready companies can sign up for free for the Canada Brand program to gain access to the revamped marketing toolbox,, optimized for today's digital-first business environment.

Given the rise of protectionism, the impact of geopolitical factors, and the increased risks faced by Canadian agriculture and agri-food businesses, it's more essential than ever to proactively and deliberately diversify our export markets. As outlined in the Indo-Pacific Strategy, stronger international trade, investment and supply chain resilience are among Canada's top strategic objectives.
