Engagement Calendar

As part of its current food safety consultation with micro and small businesses, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will host a number of webinar and face-to-face discussion sessions across Canada. These sessions will provide attendees an overview of the proposed approach to strengthen food safety in Canada and why this is important. Our goal is to open a discussion and seek input on what this would mean for micro and small businesses like yours.

To register, complete the online registration form (below) next to the session date and time of your choice. If you have any questions related to the webinars or face-to-face sessions, please send them to cfia-modernisation-acia@inspection.gc.ca
