TRACE- Livestock Identification and Traceability Program
In 2006, federal, provincial and territorial ministers of agriculture announced the need to develop a national agriculture and food traceability system, starting with livestock and poultry. An industry-government advisory committee was created to discuss the design and implementation of the proposed traceability system.
The CFIA conducted two round of national consultations in 2013 and 2015 on proposed amendments to the Health of Animals Regulations dealing with livestock identification and traceability. Through the Regulatory Implementation Committee, national industry associations, provinces and the federal government are preparing the implementation of the proposed regulations in order to ensure compliance with the new proposed requirements and message consistency.
