Minister of Health

Minister's message

On behalf of Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), I am pleased to present our report on fees for 2019–20.

The Service Fees Act provides a modern legislative framework that enables cost-effective delivery of services and, through better reporting to Parliament, improves transparency and oversight.

The CFIA is committed to continuous improvement to better serve stakeholders and Canadians. The CFIA continues to review its service fees as it progresses toward the best method to recover costs, in the spirit of open and transparent fee management.

Service fees support the important activities delivered by the CFIA – activities that achieve the Agency's mandate to safeguard food, animals and plants, which enhances the health and well-being of Canada's people, environment and economy. Critical activities have continued to be delivered throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Some activities were temporarily suspended in the interest of public health objectives; user fees are only applied when the services have been delivered.

This year's report provides detail on each fee, such as the type and rate of adjustment, across the CFIA's business lines (food, animal and plant), all of which support market access.

I invite you to read this report, which provides a record of how the Agency works to better serve regulated parties and advance key mandate priorities that maintain and improve the health and safety of all Canadians.

The Honourable Patty Hajdu, PC, MP
Minister of Health

About this report

This report, which is tabled under section 20 of the Service Fees Act and section 4.2.8 of the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, contains information about the fees that Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) had the authority to set in 2019 to 2020.

Government of Canada departments may set fees for services, licences, permits, products, the use of facilities; for other authorizations of rights or privileges; or to recover, in whole or in part, costs incurred in relation to a regulatory scheme.

For reporting purposes, fees must be categorized under the following three fee setting mechanisms:

  1. Act, regulation or fees notice
    • An act of Parliament delegates the fee setting authority to a department, minister or Governor in Council
  2. Contract
    • Ministers have the authority to enter into contracts, which are usually negotiated between the minister and an individual or organization, and which cover fees and other terms and conditions. In some cases, that authority may also be provided by an act of Parliament
  3. Market-rate or auction or both
    • The authority to set these fees is pursuant to an act of Parliament or regulation, and the minister, department or Governor in Council has no control over the fee amount

This report contains information about all fees that are under CFIA's authority, including any that are collected by another department.

The information covers fees that are subject to the Service Fees Act, and fees that are exempted from the Service Fees Act.

For fees set by contract, fees set by market-rate, auction or both, the report provides totals only. For fees set by act, regulation or fees notice, it provides totals for fee groupings, as well as detailed information for each fee.

Although the fees that CFIA charges under the Access to Information Act are subject to the Service Fees Act, they are not included in this report. Information on CFIA's access to information fees for fiscal year 2019 to 2020 can be found in our access to information report, which is posted online at: Annual Reports on the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act.

Remissions

A remission is a partial or full return of a fee to a fee payer who paid for a service for which a department deemed that the service standard was not met.

Under the Service Fees Act, departments must develop policies for determining whether a service standard has been met and for determining how much of a fee will be remitted to a fee payer if a service standard is not met. This requirement will not take effect until April 1, 2021, so this report does not include remissions issued under the Service Fees Act. It does, however, include remissions issued under CFIA's enabling legislationTable Note 1.

Overall totals, by fee setting mechanism

The following table presents the total revenue, cost and remissions for all fees that CFIA had the authority to set in fiscal year 2019 to 2020, by fee setting mechanism.
