Maintenance Notice

My CFIA may be unavailable:

Thank you for your understanding.

Attention all food businesses: Licences begin to expire January 15 – renew now

Some Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence holders will need to take action now to ensure they renew their licence before it expires. Some SFC licences expire January 15, while others will expire over the coming months. Check your licence's expiration date now and renew your licence online through your My CFIA account. If your licence expires, your business will no longer be permitted to conduct licensed activities in accordance with the Safe Food for Canadians Act and may be subject to enforcement actions and removal from export eligibility lists.
