The Canadian Food Inspection Agency wants your feedback as it embarks on an Import Revitalization Project. The Project will help adapt our import programs to respond to:

  • changing industry requirements
  • modern tools and technology
  • enhanced risk modelling
  • evolving partner relationships

The Agency’s import programs and frameworks help ensure imported food, plants and animals meet Canadian standards. CFIA’s approach to import oversight aligns with the Agency’s efforts to safeguard the health and well-being of Canada’s people, environment and economy.

A Blueprint for Imports

The Blueprint for Imports provides a clear and transparent summary of recommendations to revitalize the CFIA’s import programs. It outlines measures to revitalize CFIA’s approach to import oversight, with a focus on effective and efficient risk mitigation. Informed by the Agency’s Import Program Framework, the Blueprint for Imports describes:

  • the context of import programs
  • guiding principles
  • key activities
  • a logic model

We want to hear from you

Continuous improvement is key to ensuring that CFIA’s import programs stay effective, efficient and current. To comment or ask questions about the Blueprint for Imports, please contact:
