Canada: new rules for pig industry strengthen livestock sector

Mandatory national pig traceability system will enhance capacity to track animals from farm to slaughter.

Friday 28 February 2014 (4 years 1 months 24 days ago)

After extensive industry consultation, the Harper Government is further strengthening Canada's livestock sector by enhancing its capacity to track animals from farm to slaughter through a mandatory national pig traceability system. The related amendments to the Health of Animals Regulations have been published in Canada Gazette, Part II.

The regulations come into force on July 1, 2014 for all domestic pigs that are farmed for food production, including those that die on farm and cannot enter the food chain. Effective July 1, 2015 the regulations will be extended to also include farmed wild boars.

The Government has amended the Health of Animals Regulations to require pig farmers and other pig industry custodians to keep records and report all movements of pigs, from birth or import to slaughter or export. The regulations also detail how farmed pigs and farmed wild boars are to be identified.
