The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has completed the re-evaluation of captan. Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, the PMRA has found the continued registration of products containing captan to be acceptable.

An evaluation of available scientific information found that the following uses of captan products meet current standards for protection of human health or the environment, when used according to the conditions of registration which include required amendments to label directions:
•    Tree fruit (apple, cherry (sweet and sour), apricot, peach, pear, plum, prune, nectarine)
•    Grape
•    Field cucumber, pumpkin, squash, potato, field tomato
•    Soil treatment (pre-plant) for broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, kale, pea, pepper, rutabaga, tomato, turnip
•    Blackberry, blueberry (highbush, lowbush), loganberry, raspberry, strawberry
•    Turf (sod farm, golf course)
•    Ginseng
•    Greenhouse ornamentals (non-cut flowers)
•    Outdoor ornamentals (cut and non-cut flowers)
•    Rhubarb forcing sheds
•    Greenhouse and field soil treatment (pre-plant): seedling or transplant of ornamentals (shrubs, trees, flowers), lawn seedbeds, and vegetables (bean, celery, crucifer, eggplant, pea, pepper, tomato)
•    Commercial slurry seed treatment using liquid products for all currently registered seeds
•    Commercial slurry seed treatment using wettable powder product for beans
•    On-farm slurry seed treatment of bean, chickpea, corn, lentil, lupin, pea, soybean
•    On-farm dry seed treatment of sweet corn
•    Planting of imported seeds (sugar beet, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts)
•    Flower bulb dip

Certain other uses of captan are being cancelled to address risks of concern to human health or due to inadequate data to assess risk. These uses are as follows:
•    Ornamental stem dip
•    Greenhouse ornamentals (cut flowers)
•    Tobacco seedlings
•    On-farm dry application to bean seeds
•    Treatment of small-seeded vegetable seeds (broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, sugar beets). Planting of imported seeds still permitted.
