The Government of Canada and the Canadian Pork Council (CPC) have agreed that mandatory requirements for the PigTrace Canada program will take effect on July 1, 2014. Federal regulation of PigTrace Canada, the national swine traceability system, is an important step towards building an effective program that responds to disease outbreaks and food safety emergencies.

Since proposed amendments to the Health of Animals Regulations were published by the Government of Canada during the summer of 2012, the CPC and its provincial partners have worked with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) on an appropriate timeline to implement the traceability program and make it mandatory under federal law. July 1, 2014 sets a reasonable timeframe to allow the CPC and its provincial member organizations to continue to grow the program.
