Transport Quality Assurance (TQA)

The Transport Quality Assurance (TQA) program is a training and certification program designed for transporters, producers and handlers of pigs that are involved in the loading, unloading and transport of pigs. All transporters delivering to federally-inspected pork processing plants in Manitoba must be certified. 

Manitoba Pork is partnering with Steve's Livestock Transport in Blumenort to conduct the training and certification, at a cost of $40 per person for levy paying members and $200 for non-levy payers. To register and for further information, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

NOTE: Pre-payment by cash, cheque or credit card is required prior to the course (payment will not be accepted at the course). Cancellation must be made at least one week prior to the course to receive a refund.
