Canada - Food and Agricultural Import Regulations and Standards Country Report 2020

Country:
Canada

Report Highlights:
Since July 1, 2020, the USMCA certification of origin requires the certifier (importer, exporter, or producer) to cover nine mandated minimum data elements, replacing the old NAFTA certificate of origin. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada pushed back most regulatory initiatives (including Front of Package Labeling) until late 2020 or early 2021, and delayed enforcement of certain measures (including Safe Food for Canadians Regulations requirements for the manufactured food sector).
