Notice to industry: Service fee cap extended for certain animal health export certificates

OTTAWA, October 20, 2017: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) renewed its existing $75 per unit cap on service fees for certain animal health export certificates. This cap applies to export certification for live animals – including swine, cattle, flightless birds, poultry, hatching eggs, horses, sheep and goats – or mammalian embryos that do not require testing and inspection by the CFIA. This measure will be in effect until September 30, 2019.

The cap will not affect the level of inspection or animal health services provided by the CFIA. There are no other changes to animal health fees at this time.

The CFIA continues to review its service standards and service fees to better reflect the actual cost of delivering services.
