Oh, Canada!

I started filling out the forms to make Stuff for Sprouts products available in Canada. Apparently in order to be able to sell things in stores in Canada, they need to be registered with Health Canada. Who knew.

People in Canada can buy from our website, but stores in Canada can't stock our products until we register. Which is cool. The forms seem fairly straightforward, the filing appears to be free.

This in contrast to proposed legislation in the US that will require businesses like Stuff for Sprouts to register products annually and pay $2000 per product annually. Which essentially would make the barrier to entry impossible for little guys like us to stay in business.

First Health Coverage and now this...hmmm...we might want to look to the North a bit for some better ideas!
