'Product of Canada' and 'Made in Canada' Labelling Claim
May 28, 2019 - The Government of Canada is launching a public consultation today on the labelling guidelines for "Product of Canada" and "Made in Canada." The changes proposed to the labeling guidelines seek to improve upon the information available to consumers to identify Canadian food products and make informed purchasing decisions. They are also based on the recommendations following a recent survey of Canada's food industry, led by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
