Food Safety, Biosecurity & Traceability

Assurance Systems Program
As part of Growing Forward 2, the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Framework Agreement, the Prince Edward Island Department of Agriculture and Forestry delivers the Assurance Systems Program. This cost-shared program makes assistance available to eligible recipients to address risks related to humans, animals and plants through project driven and other outcome based approaches. These risks may relate to, but are not limited to, on-farm and post-farm food safety, animal welfare, biosecurity, traceability, animal/plant health, emergency management, quality assurance, and surveillance. This program consists of two sub-programs: On-Farm Assurance Sub-Program and Post-Farm Assurance Sub-Program.

Premises Identification Program for Livestock and Poultry
Knowing where livestock and poultry are located provides valuable information in responding to animal disease outbreaks and food safety issues. These locations are referred to as "premises". Premises is defined nationally as "parcels of land where livestock and poultry are grown, kept, assembled or disposed of".
