2017-2018 CFIA Full-Time Equivalents

In 2017-18, the CFIA had 6271 full-time equivalents (FTE) dedicated to safeguarding food, animals and plants, which enhances the health and well-being of Canada's people, environment and economy.

Full-Time Equivalents (FTE)

FTE is a standard financial measure used to capture the total paid hours of an organization's workforce over the course of a fiscal year.

One full FTE is equal to 37.5 hours of work per week over 12 months (for example, the total work of one full-time employee, or the combined work of two half-time employees)

Using FTEs on an annual basis, rather than the fluctuating number of employees at a given period in time, more accurately depicts the CFIA's investment in inspection activities across the agency and throughout the year.
