Swine Traceability is an important animal health and food safety system that enables precise and rapid emergency response to protect livestock, producers and consumers.
Any person in custody of or in care and control of swine or deadstock of swine is required to comply with both federal and provincial legislations when moving swine.
Requirements in Alberta’s regulation meet or exceed those in the federal Health of Animals Act. The Canadian Pork Council therefore advises persons in Alberta to comply with Alberta’s regulation. Alberta Pork is the delegated authority for administration of the Swine Traceability Regulation on behalf of the Minister of Agriculture and Forestry.
