This document represents the first phase of a two phased consultation process on the CFIA's cost recovery regime. In this first phase, we are seeking input on the proposed streamlined list of services, services standards, the appropriate level of cost sharing between regulated parties and taxpayers, and the impacts of potential fee increases on businesses. We are not proposing any specific changes to fee amounts at this time. The CFIA will consult on a proposal for new and updated fees as part of the second phase of the consultations.

We want to hear from you.

This document:

  • Informs you, the stakeholder, of the approach taken by the CFIA to update the list of services and associated service standards
  • Describes how you can participate in the consultation process
  • Seeks your input on a streamlined list of services and service standards
  • Seeks your input on the appropriate level of cost sharing between regulated parties and taxpayers for CFIA activities

You will notice questions contained in blue text boxes throughout the document. Please review and provide your responses to the CFIA by mail or e-mail using the contact information identified in Section 12 - Providing your input. Industry associations are urged to gather feedback from their members on the questions posed in this document related to the proposed changes. For ease of reference, a summary of the questions is included as Annex 1.

Regulated parties are also encouraged to complete an impact assessment questionnaire. This questionnaire will allow the CFIA to better understand how fee increases may affect businesses as it develops its proposal for changes to fees.

From January 2017 until March 2017, a series of consultation opportunities, such as webinars (web-based seminars) and face-to-face meetings between the CFIA and stakeholders will be organized. We encourage you to participate in these meetings in order to seek further information on the proposed changes and to provide your feedback.
