Do I have to show French on my labeling?

Yes, all mandatory labeling requirements are to be shown in English and French. There are a few exceptions like the dealer’s name and address which can appear in either. Additional labeling information such as directions for use and promotional statements do not have to be bilingual but dealers are encouraged to show both. Some products may be exempt including test market products, local and specialty products.
