Forward Regulatory Plan: 2021 to 2023
Amendments to the Agriculture and Agri-Food Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations (hatchery)

Description of the objective

Administrative monetary penalties are one of several enforcement options available for CFIA to respond to non-compliance.  Amendments to the Agriculture and Agri-Food Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations are being proposed to introduce administrative monetary penalties for failure to comply with certain requirements of the newly proposed Hatchery Regulations. These amendments are consequential to recent amendments to the Hatchery regulations.
