Key Initiatives

The Canadian Pork Council works on different initiatives to further the pork industry with the objective of ensuring the prosperity of producers. 

  • On-farm programs under the Canadian Pork Excellence umbrella include traceability, food safety and animal care.
  • Swine health initiatives ensure that important issues such as disease surveillance, biosecurity or antimicrobial resistance are tackled and a strategic national approach is in place.
  • Foreign trade initiatives aimed at expanding market access and increasing knowledge of Canadian pork in order to increase demand for hogs.
