Food Exports

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) verifies that exported food and food products meet Canadian requirements (where applicable) as well as those of the importing country. Countries may have different requirements for each food commodity. Exporters are responsible for knowing the requirements set by the country of import that relate to public and animal health as well as plant protection.

Export certificates

If an export certificate is required by the importing country, the exporter may only request a certificate for product still in Canada. Product no longer in Canada is not eligible for certification as the CFIA is unable to attest to the compliance of the food to any requirements.
