Becoming CGCN Certified

CGCN Certification

Certification from the Canadian Grapevine Certification Network will allow you to proudly show growers that your nursery offers high-quality, sustainable domestic grapevine material, that has been virus tested.

Our Certification Committee, and CGCN Board of Directors have developed our Certification Standards in consultation with industry input. Visit the CGCN Certification Program tab under the Certification drop down menu for more details. Contact us using the form below for more information on how to become CGCN certified.

Growers, do you have a varietal you wish to see available through the Certification?

Have a varietal request you wish to see available through the CGCN Certification Protocols?  Drop us a line using the form below with what varietal(s) you wish to see available through the program. In addition to the 50+ varietals already in our program, we add a few more each year based on requests.

CGCN-RCCV would like to see a long-term virus strategy implemented in Canada by 2025.
