  • Packaging of imported product may be in French-only or English-only, or English or French and another language; however, importers will be required to post the bilingual label text on their website. This website should not contain any additional advertising or claims outside what is authorized, for these products.
  • Importers must provide sellers with a means to inform consumers, at time of sale, of where they can access bilingual information on the product. This could be made available through a sticker applied directly to the products, posters, or signage with take-away pamphlets at the point of sale.

Effective immediately, products previously accepted with unilingual labelling under the interim measure will be required to meet the above labelling requirements.
