The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) regulates federally registered honey establishments and honey imported into Canada to verify that honey is safe and wholesome, properly packaged and labelled according to the regulatory requirements, and eligible to be traded interprovincially, exported or bear the Canada grade mark.
