The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) verifies that meat and poultry products leaving federally-inspected establishments or being imported into Canada are safe and wholesome. The CFIA also monitors registered and non-registered establishments for labelling compliance and audits the delivery of a grading program based on objective standards of meat quality and retail yield.

Note

The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations will come into effect on January 15, 2019 and include food-specific requirements for commodities such as meat products and food animals.
