Canada Implementing New Food Safety Law

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is developing new regulations during the next two years to implement the Safe Food for Canadians Act, which passed in November 2012.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is accepting comments until Nov. 30 on three elements of a new Safe Food for Canadians Action Plan that are intended to modernize the country's food safety system. CFIA's compliance promotion initiative, the proposed new regulatory framework for federal food inspections, and the planned approach to regulation and inspection were presented at CFIA's Food Safety Regulatory Forum on June 4, which was the first stage in the consultation process that now continues online.

The plan will implement the Safe Food for Canadians Act, which passed in November 2012. A fourth element, a proposed modernization of Canada's food labeling system, is already under way.

"Ongoing consultations with Canadians allow our government to engage in meaningful discussion to continue to improve our world-class food safety system," said Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz. "Our ultimate goal remains to have a food system that is the best that it can be, and we are confident that the Safe Food for Canadians Action Plan will continue take us there."
