About the consultation
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has launched a public consultation to seek comments on the proposed guidelines for "Product of Canada" and "Made in Canada" food labelling claims.
Consumers have told the government that they want to be able to better identify Canadian foods. So the Government of Canada is reviewing the guidelines for "Product of Canada" and "Made in Canada" food labelling claims.
To help Canada's food industry better promote Canadian products within Canada, the government reviewed the guidelines and consulted with the food industry on proposed changes. The goal of that consultation was to make the guidelines better reflect market realities and help the food industry produce and market Canadian products.
CFIA is now consulting with Canadians on the proposed changes to the guidelines. The aim is gauge your support for the proposed changes to improve the information that consumers need to identify Canadian products and make an informed purchasing decision.
