What is the Government of Canada doing to keep our food supply safe?
The Government of Canada is committed to providing safe food to all Canadians. Health Canada is responsible for establishing regulations and standards relating to the safety and nutritional quality of foods sold in Canada. Through inspection and enforcement activities, the CFIA is responsible for verifying that food sold in Canada meets Health Canada’s requirements.
