Federal Budget 2014: $390 Million for Food Safety

In the 2014 federal budget – the Economic Action Plan 2014 – the federal government plans on investing $390 million over five years to strengthen Canada’s food safety system.

Funding Will Support:

  • hiring of more than 200 additional inspectors and other staff
  • establishing a national information system to enable authorities to move quickly to detect and respond to food safety risks
  • continuing core bovine spongiform encephalopathy-related programming aimed at safeguarding human and animal health

The federal government says it will also pursue legislative amendments as needed to facilitate the implementation of food safety program improvements.
