    The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is dedicated to safeguarding food, animals and plants, which enhances the health and well-being of Canada’s people, environment and economy.

    The Agency works with its partners to implement food safety measures; manage food, animal and plant risks and emergencies; and promote the development of food safety and disease control systems to maintain safety to Canada’s high-quality agriculture, aquaculture and fisheries, and agri-food products.

    The Food program develops and delivers programs and services designed to protect Canadians from preventable food safety hazards, to ensure that food safety emergencies are effectively managed that the public is aware of, and contribute to, food safety and that consumers and the marketplace are protected from unfair practices. Canada’s food safety requirements apply equally to the domestic and imported food sectors.

    The Animal Health Program exists to minimize risks to Canada’s terrestrial and aquatic animal resource base, and to ensure the safety of animal feeds, animal products and animal vaccines (veterinary biologics), which are integral to a safe and accessible food supply as well as to public health. The program achieves its objectives by protecting Canada’s animal’s, including aquatic animals, from disease; managing animal disease incidents and emergencies; promoting and regulating animal welfare; verifying that animal feeds and vaccines are safe and efficacious; and guarding against deliberate threats to Canada’s animal resource base.

    The Plant Program contributes to food safety and security by preventing the introduction and spread of pests that could damage Canadian production and the income of Canadian producers; verifying Canadian farmers have access to safe and effective agricultural inputs that will support their needs as well as environmental sustainability; fostering innovation through protection of intellectual property; and maintaining the reputation of Canadian agricultural products in the global marketplace as being high-quality, pest free, safe and competitively priced.

    The three Operational Guidance & Expertise (OGE) Business Line Director’s (Animal, Food and Plant), would like to standardize the process for obtaining translation and obtain a contract with an external service provider. This is supported by the Inspection Support Executive Director and Financial Advisor.
