Learn more about who we are and what we do.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) touches the lives of all Canadians in so many positive ways. We inspect to protect you, your family, the environment and the economy – and have been doing so for the last 25 years.

A lot has changed since 1997, but one thing remains the same: we are powered by our people.

Each day, hard-working CFIA employees — including inspectors, veterinarians and scientists — inspect food for safety risks, protect plants from pests and invasive species, and respond to animal diseases.

Inspect. Protect. Connect. Join us as we proudly celebrate our 25th anniversary and introduce you to some of our amazing experts across the country.

Not all superheroes wear capes

This brave team stops at nothing in the battle against enemies like food pathogens, plant pests and animal diseases.
