Changes to the Health of Animals Regulations (Part XII – Humane Transport) came into effect on February 20, 2020. This was followed by a two-year transition period that provided certain exemptions. This transition period has ended and enforcement of the new rules is now in effect. This includes new limits for maximum transport times and new requirements for record-keeping.
This Briefing Note is intended to communicate information that National Cattle Feeders’ Association (NCFA) has received from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) on certain aspects of the new Humane Transport regulation. The Briefing does not, however, constitute legal advice or official guidance. Cattle feeders are strongly urged to familiarize themselves with the new regulations by accessing the resources found at the end of the Briefing Note.
