Growers and other users of CFIA services can give their input until April 21, 2017

The Canadian Food inspection Agency (CFIA) have undertaken a cost recovery initiative, with the intent of updating their current user fee structure and service standards. Most CFIA fees have not changed since the Agency was created in 1997, with the result that today, CFIA recovers less than 10 percent of its costs from fees. Additionally, current service standards are non-existent or outdated.

The Agency has proposed a two-phased consultation approach. Phase one is currently underway and seeks input from all user groups to help them to better understand impacts of cost recovery and industry-appropriate service standards.

CFIA will engage with all related industry associations, including the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA), as part of their ongoing consultation process. However, it will be particularly important that nursery growers and all other companies that are regular users of CFIA inspection services, respond directly to the survey as indicated below.

The deadline to participate in phase one consultations is April 21, 2017.
