Summerland Varieties identifies promising new tree fruit varieties and commercializes them for the benefit of the Canadian tree fruit industry.

  • Registering new varieties for Plant Variety Protection in global markets
  • Collecting royalties on behalf of variety owners
  • Enforcing the intellectual property rights of the variety owners
  • Reinvesting domestic and international royalties into AAFC’s apple and sweet cherry breeding programs and related research
