Food, plant and animal inspections
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), and Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) establish the requirements for all food, plants, animals and related products entering or leaving the country. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is responsible for enforcing these requirements as they apply at the border in both the travellers and commercial streams in all modes.
