CFIA – New Administrative Monetary Penalties

The Government of Canada is committed to maintaining a strong food safety system.  Today, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced that Administrative Monetary Penalties (AMPs) of up to $15,000 can now be issued for violations by food businesses that threaten food safety and market access for Canadian goods.

The amendments to the Agriculture and Agri-Food Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations (AAAMPR) were published today in Canada Gazette Part II and are now in force. These apply to both businesses and individuals.
