Transport regulation grace period extended to all livestock sectors

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has implemented a “transition period” for the feed, water, and rest requirements for all livestock sectors, in addition to the previously announced grace period extended to beef and dairy animals.

CFIA says it will use the first two years of the new regulation period, beginning February 2020, to “focus its enforcement efforts on compliance promotion through education and awareness measures, which are part of the CFIA’s continuum of enforcement actions,”

The amended regulations contain outcome-based requirements to ensure that animals are not likely to suffer (from exhaustion, dehydration, because of adverse weather or other conditions), be injured or die. These regulatory outcomes of Part XII must still be met, CFIA says, and has the discretion to appropriately enforce these outcome-based requirements to prevent and act on situations where animal welfare is compromised.
