Our Programs

Canadian Pork Excellence is the national platform that covers three major components of on-farm programs: Traceability, Food Safety and Animal Care.

PigTrace | PorcTracé
PigSafe | PorcSalubritéCQA | AQC
PigCare | PorcBien-ÊtreACA | BEA

In order to ensure that on-farm programs continue to reflect the good work of producers and meet the needs of domestic and global consumers, the Canadian Pork Council (CPC) has been working with producers to update existing CQA and ACA programs. The updated CQA program will be called PigSAFE and the ACA program will be called PigCARE. Both will be integrated under the Canadian Pork Excellence umbrella in 2018.


This project has been funded through the Assurance Systems stream of the AgriMarketing program under Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative.
