CFIA says farewell to Ag Canada
Posted: 10/22/2013 |
The federal government has decided to move the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to Health Canada after a 16 year stay at the agriculture department. The decision, which was announced Oct. 9, effectively removes Agriculture Canada’s oversight of food inspection and food safety and makes health minister Rona Ambrose the key minister on the file. She also oversees the Pest Management Regulatory Agency.
