Safe Food for Canadians Action Plan

The Government of Canada is taking further action to strengthen Canada's world-class food safety system with the launch of the Safe Food for Canadians Action Plan.

The Action Plan aims to strengthen Canada's food safety system through:

  • stronger food safety rules,
  • more effective inspection,
  • a renewed commitment to service, and
  • more information for consumers.

Over the next two years, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will launch a number of significant food safety enhancements. The Agency will work with consumer groups and industry to develop new regulations that will bring into force the Safe Food for Canadians Act passed in November 2012.
