The Canadian Food Inspection Agency defines biotechnology and modern biotechnology differently when related to agricultural use of biotechnology. :

“Biotechnology means the application of science and engineering in the direct or indirect use of living organisms, or parts or products of living organisms, in their natural or modified forms. This term is very broad and includes the use of traditional or conventional breeding, as well as more modern techniques such as genetic engineering.”

...

“Modern biotechnology is used to distinguish newer applications of biotechnology, such as genetic engineering and cell fusion from more conventional methods such as breeding, or fermentation.”
