The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies and BC SPCA are working to create awareness of farm animal transportation issues in Canada, and encourage humane societies, SPCAs and caring individuals across Canada to help spread the word to encourage the federal government to make progressive changes to Canada’s regulations.

You can make a difference by voicing your support for our recommendations to Canada’s Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.

Send a personal letter to Minister Lawrence MacAulay and Dr. Cornelius F. Kiley at the CFIA, asking them to strengthen Canada’s new draft animal transportation regulations. Feel free to use the background information on this site to prepare your letter, but be sure to express your concern in your own words. No postage is required to send letters to the Minister or any other Members of Parliament.

All comments on the new draft regulations must be received by February 15, 2017.

Comments on the draft regulations can be addressed to:
Dr. Cornelius F. Kiley
National Manager, Animal Welfare
Biosecurity and Assurance Programs Section
Canadian Food Inspection Agency
59 Camelot Drive, 3rd Floor East, Room 231
Ottawa, Ontario

Telephone: 613-773-7028
