How to print a permit, licence, registration or certificate issued through My CFIA
To print a licence, permit, registration, or certificate, you must first sign in to your My CFIA account.
Once signed in, make sure the validated party that requires the printed document is selected. To do this, select the white drop down box under Party Administration, click on the proper validated party, then click Select. This step must be followed in order to view all licences associated with the validated party chosen.

Steps for printing an Export Certificate
The steps for printing Export Certificates are very similar to the steps for printing permissions. On your dashboard, you can find your Export Certificate under the Issued Export Certificates tab:
After clicking the Issued Export Certificates tab, you will be presented with all export certificates that have been issued under your My CFIA profile. Locate the certificate you want to print, and then click the link under the Certificate column:
To print the issued certificate, select the View Documents button:
Your export certificate will now open in a new window. To print the signed certificate, select the Print button.
You can only print the original document once. Therefore it is important that you make sure your printer is ready, you have enough paper and that you are printing with coloured ink. You can print an unlimited amount of certified copies by following the same steps as you did to print the original document.
Once you have attempted to print the document, you will still have access to certified copies for downloading by selecting the Download button under Export Certificate - Certified Copy.
Important: Should you encounter difficulties printing the original certificate, you will need to contact the issuing Inspector (as displayed on the certificate) to request assistance.
