Export Requirements

Live Animals

If you are planning an export, please contact the Animal Health Offices in your area to get a copy of the export certificate and verify that the export certificate is still valid, that it applies to your export, and that there are no disease outbreaks or other events that may cause exports to be suspended. Please note that export conditions from some of the certificates to the USA are provided for information purposes only.

Food Exports

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) verifies that exported food and food products meet Canadian requirements (where applicable) as well as those of the importing country. Countries may have different requirements for each food commodity. Exporters are responsible for knowing the requirements set by the country of import that relate to public and animal health as well as plant protection.

If an export certificate is required by the importing country, the exporter may only request a certificate for product still in Canada. Product no longer in Canada is not eligible for certification as the CFIA is unable to attest to the compliance of the food to any requirements.
