Government, industry and consumers to discuss new food regulations and other enhancements

June 16, 2014 - Ottawa, ON - Canadian Food Inspection Agency

Government officials will meet with representatives from industry and consumer groups tomorrow to discuss the Government of Canada's ongoing efforts to strengthen food safety.

Proposed regulations under the Safe Food for Canadians Act will be the focus of the Government of Canada's Healthy and Safe Food Regulatory Forum in Gatineau, Quebec. The regulations are designed to apply stronger and more consistent oversight to all food, whether it is imported or produced in Canada.

Minister Ambrose and senior officials from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada will also outline additional steps that the Government is taking to provide increased oversight of Canada's food safety system and protect consumers.

Interested parties can review and provide comments on the proposed regulations and related initiatives through the CFIA website.

A live webcast of Minister Ambrose's speech, as well as other presentations will be available on the CFIA website starting at 8:30 a.m.
