Slaughter Plants

In order for bison meat to be exported between provinces or to the U.S. it has to be killed and processed at a packing plant that is certified by the federal government and inspected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

Meat destined to Europe has to be processed at federally regulated plants that are also certified by the EU and CFIA inspected. There is another level of certification and inspection within each province that allows meat to be processed for sale anywhere in the province.
