In fiscal yearFootnote 1  2019 to 2020, the CFIA had 6056 full-time equivalents (FTE) dedicated to safeguarding food, animals and plants, which enhances the health and well-being of Canada's people, environment and economy.

Full-time equivalents (FTE)

FTE is a standard financial measure used to capture the total paid hours of an organization's workforce over the course of a fiscal year.

One full FTE is equal to 37.5 hours of work per week over 12 months (for example, the total work of one full-time employee, or the combined work of two half-time employees).

Using FTEs on an annual basis, rather than the fluctuating number of employees at a given period in time, more accurately depicts the CFIA's investment in inspection activities across the agency and throughout the year.

Slight variations in the number of FTEs from year to year are normal due to workforce attrition.
