Program Description

The proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) were published in Canada Gazette, Part I on Jan. 21, 2017. The legislation and proposed regulations will improve Canada’s food safety system and allow the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to create a stronger, more consistent and preventive system with a risk-based inspection model.

This half-day regulatory workshop will provide an overview of the proposed SFCR, anticipated timeline for staged implementation and requirements for compliance.
