Canadian Government Updates Food Safety Regulations

On Wednesday, June 13th, The Canadian Government announced Safe Food for Canadians Regulations that will come into effect January, 15th, 2019.

The new regulations are in regards to licensing, traceability, and preventive control for food businesses.

Federal Ag Minister, Lawrence MacAulay, was a part of the announcement yesterday, and said these requirements will help expand Canada’s market access. “They will also help us make sure that our regulations are in line with food safety standards used by our major trading partners, which includes the United States, the European Union, Australia and New Zealand.”

Businesses that import food, or prepare food for export or to be sent across provincial or territorial borders, will now need to have licenses as well as preventive controls that address potential risks to food safety.
