My CFIA Roll-out Plan

At the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), we are gradually moving our services online through phased releases, but traditional channels will continue to be available during the transition. We will continue to work with our industry partners to make sure the system and business processes are appropriate for all sectors.

Online services available now and over the coming months are listed below. The rollout plan may change based on industry feedback. Check back regularly to ensure you have the most up to date information on the roll out of these services.

If you have questions, please contact 1-800-442-CFIA (2342).
