Food Labelling Modernization/Regulatory Modernization Engagement Sessions

Food Labelling Modernization/Regulatory Modernization Face-to-Face Engagement Sessions

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is holding face-to-face engagement sessions to provide consumers, industry and other stakeholders with additional opportunities to engage on the Food Labelling Modernization (FLM) initiative.

The key objectives of these sessions are to identify your food labelling issues within the focus of the FLM initiative. Our aim is to work together to collect and prioritize the issues that are important to you.

Information on other initiatives under the Safe Food for Canadians Action Plan will also be presented at these sessions, specifically the proposed regulatory modernization for federal food inspection and the proposed Imported Food Sector Product Regulations. Representatives from Health Canada will also be present to participate in the discussion.

Feedback from these meetings will contribute to key food safety and consumer protection initiatives that the CFIA is pursuing in order to modernize food safety and bring the Safe Food for Canadians Act into force.
