The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is committed to strengthening Canada's world-class food safety system. The federal government took an important step toward this goal when Parliament passed the Safe Food for Canadians Act (SFCA) in November 2012. The CFIA has been consulting on the regulatory framework for bringing the SFCA into force since 2012. Thousands of stakeholders have been engaged through various fora. The feedback has helped to shape the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR). Today's session will specifically focus on the rationale behind Agency's modernization initiative and its progress to-date. This session will help participants identify the proposed changes and what they mean for the industry. Providing ample opportunity to ask questions, the session willprovide key information to participants on the resources available to the industry and how to be in compliance with the new regulations in a timely manner.
