Farm Animal Codes of Practice updates

New national Codes of Practice for the welfare of horses, pigs, cattle and sheep are now entering the final stages of negotiation and public comment periods will be held in fall of 2012 and early 2013, providing an opportunity to the public to express their expectations for Canada to meet higher standards.

The process of developing an implementing Codes of Practice is a long and complicated one.  It's important to note that once these codes are finished being revised, it will be at least five years before they’re revisited. We need to pour significant resources into our work to improve them right now. Every dollar contributed TODAY by caring Canadians like you puts us in a better position to secure a humane life for farm animals.   

If you are interested in being involved in the process of submitting concerns/expectations, please let me know at: davidd@cfhs.ca.

Convened by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC), the Codes set out minimum requirements for treatment of all farm animals in Canada and serve as reference documents for animal cruelty law. The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies serves as the voice of the Canadian humane movement at the table.
