The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is establishing a Centre of Administration as part of the Agency's efforts to improve service delivery.

The Centre will consolidate the activities involved in delivering and/or coordinating the full range of operational administrative services related to government permissions, for instance, licences, permits and registrations.

Consolidating these key administration and business functions will:

  • provide better coordination and consistency of processes and activities;
  • simplify service for industry and the general public; and
  • increase the efficiency and consistency of the services they receive.

The creation of this Centre is in line with our other initiatives to modernize and streamline services for stakeholders, for example, Inspection Modernization and the Centres of Expertise. It also supports the Red Tape Reduction Action Plan 2012 and government-wide efforts to create single contact portals whenever appropriate.

Work on the concept for the Centre of Administration began in 2012-2013 and it will be operational by March 2014.
