Sanitary and phytosanitary measure

On November 20, 2012, the House of Commons in Canada approved on a unanimous vote Bill S-11, The Safe Food for Canadians Act. The bill will proceed to the Senate for royal assent, but will not come into force until the regulations are completed. The declared aim of the Government of Canada in introducing the bill was to modernize, simplify and strengthen rules for food commodities imported into Canada and to provide increased export opportunities for Canadian producers. The measures in the bill affecting imports are based on a principle of national treatment, not subjecting imported foods to standards different from those on domestically produced foods.
