“The livestock industry is a key driver of Canada’s economy,” said Minister MacAulay. “The Government of Canada is proud to support goat farmers in their efforts to strengthen the national traceability system.”

The Canadian National Goat Federation (CNGF) has been actively involved in the process, recently engaging with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency over proposed regulations, and developing a National Goat ID Program. 

“I am very pleased that CNGF has received this funding, which will allow us to put in place the necessary components for goat producers for when traceability regulations come into effect,” said Beth Peters, CNGF president.

The investment will be made under Growing Forward 2’s AgriMarketing Program, under the Assurance Systems stream.
