Information to Assist in Completing the Information Provider Profile Form

Applicable to Step 1

1. Is it required that the business name on the Electronic Pesticide Regulatory System (e-PRS) Secure Web Portal Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement and in Step 1 of the Information Provider Profile Form (IPPF) for Initial e-PRS Enrolment have the status of a person in law?

The e-PRS Secure Web Portal Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement sets out the terms and conditions under which the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) will make the e-PRS Secure Web Portal available to the Information Provider for the purpose of submitting document packages.

An Information Provider must be an entity that has the status of a person in law. It may be either one of the following:

  • a natural person who may or may not have a registered business name; or
  • one created by law to conduct commercial business
    (e.g., Corporation, Partnership, Co-operative).

A person in law, as defined above, has the capacity to own property, such as pest control product registrations, and be bound by contracts into which that entity enters.

The business name of the Information Provider identified in the e-PRS Secure Web Portal Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement and Step 1 of the IPPF must have the status of a person in law.

A person in law, as defined above, doing business under a different name than its personal or corporate name, must indicate both its corporate and business name (trade name) on the e-PRS Secure Web Portal Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement and in Step 1 of the IPPF.

2. What supporting documents are required to prove the Information Provider's legal capacity to enter into the e-PRS Secure Web Portal Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement (e.g., proving that the Information Provider is a natural or legal person)?

The supporting documentation will depend on the individual Information Provider's circumstances. For example, a corporation would have a Certificate of Incorporation to provide while a natural person who has a registered business name would provide a Registration Document.

If you require assistance in determining what supporting documents you must submit with the enrolment request, please contact the Pest Management Information Service.

Enrolment requests will not be processed without appropriate and complete supporting documentation.

3. Who cannot be an Information Provider?

What follows are examples of situations where a business or someone could not become an Information Provider:

  • a business unit of convenience within the organizational structure of a corporation which does not hold a distinct legal status (i.e., "Division of ...").
  • a name registered only under the Trademarks Act and not registered under the Corporation Act.
  • a name registered only as a brand name.

Applicable to Step 2

The Primary Officer (PO) information collected in Step 2 defines the communication links for the PO signing the e-PRS Secure Web Portal Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement. This information will be used by the PMRA to communicate with the PO where the agreement calls for notice or notification to be given, and for general communication purposes with respect to the e-PRS Secure Web Portal and the PO's e-PRS Secure Web Portal account. The PO will be able to view this information within their e-PRS Secure Web Portal account.

Applicable to Step 3

Four shared secret questions appear under Step 3. The PO is required to provide an answer to each of these questions. The answers provided are "personal" to the PO and should be easily remembered by the PO. The PMRA will use these answers to set up the PO's e-PRS Secure Web Portal account.

As part of activating their account to access the e-PRS Secure Web Portal, the PO will have to enter the shared secret answers, exactly as provided in Step 3. This is to confirm the identity of the PO during the account activation process.

Applicable to Step 4

This step confirms the current and intended role of the Information Provider. Many Information Providers will be unknown to the Agency prior to the enrolment request. The Agency is particularly interested in identifying those Information Providers who intend to make applications to hold pest control product registrations. By identifying these Information Providers during the enrolment process, the appropriate contact information (e.g., steps 5 and 6) can be established to ensure that complete and correct information will be available when the first e-PRS Secure Web Portal submission transaction is initiated.

Applicable to Step 5

The applicant/registrant business address will likely be the same as that provided in Step 2; however, it may differ. This information will be viewable when transacting via the e-PRS Secure Web Portal. Operational and system requirements dictate that there is only one business address per applicant/registrant.

Applicable to Step 6

The Regulatory Mailing address is the address to which the PMRA will direct the applicant/registrants' regulatory mail. Operational and system requirements dictate that there is only one regulatory mailing address per applicant/registrant.

Non-Canadian applicants/registrants must identify their Canadian representative as the regulatory mailing address on this form.
