Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR)

The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) will come into force on January 15, 2019.

Once the SFCR come into force, some requirements will have to be met immediately, while other requirements will be phased in over a period of 12-30 months based on food commodity, type of activity and business size.

The SFCR specifies whether you need a licence based on the activities you conduct, and not based on the type of business.

To find out whether you need a licence, the best place to start is the Licensing interactive tool.

The CFIA has an advanced search tool called the Guidance Finder, which lets users find information about SFCR requirements by specifying activity type, food commodity, method of production and document type.

Once you have received your SFCR licence number please advise the service group (service@willsonintl.com)
