The Government of Canada is cracking down on those who mistreat and improperly transport livestock by more than doubling current fines - the first increase in over 10 years.

Effective immediately, administrative monetary penalties (AMPs) of up to $10,000 can be imposed, more than doubling the previous maximum penalty of $4,000, on those who violate the Health of Animals Act.

The CFIA will now be able to impose fines up to a maximum of $10,000 instead of $4,000. The CFIA will retain the ability to increase fines by up to 50% of the maximum fine for repeat offenders. The CFIA will have the ability to look back into the past five years, instead of three years, of the offender’s history. For example, if an offender commits his second very serious violation within five years, the CFIA will now have the ability to impose a fine of up to $15,000, instead of the previous maximum of $6,000.
