Consultation on amendments to the CFIA Fees Notice

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is seeking feedback on proposed changes to certain parts of the CFIA Fees Notice to implement the licensing regime and align the Notice with the language and authorities in the Safe Food for Canadians Act and Regulations.

The Safe Food for Canadians Act brings with it a new licensing regime and related costs along with the repeal of the old food statutes.

No changes to monetary values are being proposed at this time except for the removal of some charges and the introduction of the 2- year licensing regime with the associated cost of $250.

The CFIA has launched a 45-day consultation from July 25, 2018 to September 7, 2018 in order to gather comments on the proposed changes.
