Food export requirements library

On this page


The export requirements library outlines destination country requirements you need to meet when exporting. They include conditions the Canadian government has accepted for issuing export certificates. Their purpose is to facilitate access to overseas markets for Canadian exporters.

The destination country requirements provided below are based on information available to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) at the time of posting. You should confirm product requirements with the importer and the competent foreign authorities before commencing full scale production for export to a foreign market. The CFIA assumes no liability for the accuracy of this information.

Before you export your products, check for changes to regulatory or commercial requirements. You are responsible for ensuring that your exports comply with applicable Canadian requirements and those of the importing country.

Note: importing country requirements may relate to public health as well as animal health and plant protection.
