Under the Safe Foods for Canadians Act is a license required?
Yes, licensing and registration are very effective ways to address non compliance. If there is a contravention a license can be suspended ore revoked. Currently the Canadian Food Inspection agency requires licenses for some food commodities. The provisions in the new act will allow CFIA to apply licenses to all food commodities. Those establishments that currently hold multiple licenses due to various commodities will also be able to apply for one license which will reduce the administrative burden for multiply licensing. Example meat and fish products have separate license applications.
