Notice to industry: Service fee cap extended for certain animal health export certificates

As of September 30, 2020, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has extended its fee cap on service fees for certain animal health export certificates until September 30, 2022. This cap applies to export certification for live animals—for example swine, cattle, flightless birds, poultry, hatching eggs, horses, sheep and goats—and mammalian embryos that do not require testing and inspection by the CFIA.

Under the Service Fees Act (SFA), the CFIA has begun adjusting its fees annually, based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The current fee cap of $76.65 will continue to be adjusted for inflation for the duration of the remission.

The cap does not affect the level of inspection or animal health services provided by CFIA. There are no other changes to animal health fees at this time.

The CFIA continues to review its service standards and service fees to better reflect the actual cost of delivering services.
