Agri-food and aquaculture sector: Targeted regulatory review

Published: February 2021
Last update: February 2021

Since June 2019, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Health Canada, and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) have made great strides in advancing work on the Agri-food and Aquaculture Roadmap's initiatives. These updates on the roadmap initiatives provide a brief overview of some of the highlights on implementation progress.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, these departments and agencies have had to redirect resources to focus on emergency responses and new emerging priorities. This has caused some initiatives to experience delays in meeting original target dates. Nevertheless, the next steps on these particular initiatives are continuously revised in light of these current circumstances in order to continue delivering on roadmap commitments and avoid any unnecessary delays.

Revised timelines for all regulatory initiatives can be found in "Forward regulatory plans".
