Regulatory transparency and openness
The Government of Canada is making more data and information available to Canadians than ever before. Canadians are also being offered more opportunities to participate in discussions on government policies and priorities.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) plays a key role in protecting the health and safety of Canadians and is committed to greater transparency and openness.

Openness and transparency at the CFIA
Together, the Open and Transparent Agency Framework 2019-2022 | PDF (1,153 kb) and Open and Transparent Agency Policy provide Agency direction to chart the path for the next phase of CFIA's Transparency Agenda:
- The framework provides the blueprint to guide the Agency's efforts in making more information available about its decisions and activities.
- The policy sets out the high-level direction CFIA is taking to meet its openness and transparency objectives and bring the framework to life.
The Open and Transparent Agency Framework and Policy were developed with input from CFIA employees and external stakeholders. The Agency shared initial drafts and gathered comments during consultations held in 2018, which were analyzed and used to improve these documents.
A summary of feedback received from external stakeholders is available in the What We Learned report.
