AAFC Response Statistics Canada Food Processing Data




The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) recognizes that COVID-19 prevention and response activities maintained by operators at their locations are critical elements for employee health and safety.

In order to protect the health and safety of its employees, the CFIA expects that each operator abide by the advice and guidance provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), as well as by local public health authorities in addressing the COVID-19 outbreak. Operators Footnote1 must be prepared to respond to queries from the CFIA. The absence of appropriate measures by the operator to protect CFIA employees may impact the delivery of CFIA inspection services.

Communication and a collaborative approach are key to addressing COVID-19 public health risks.

Preventive plans can be used as a communication tool between the operator and the CFIA. As such, plans should include measures taken by operators that are:

  • tailored to the specific needs and realities of individual operations.
  • documented.
  • thoroughly implemented.
