Transition to PigSAFE | PigCARE

The Canadian Pork Council and Manitoba Pork have both recently passed motions to extend the implementation of the PigSAFE|PigCARE (PS|PC) programs until 2023. This means:

  • All Manitoba farms that are still on CQA can remain on CQA for their 2020, 2021 and 2022 validations. You must still follow your Full-Partial-Partial cycle.
  • Farms that wish to remain on the national programs after those validation years must do a Full PS|PC Validation for their 2023 validation.
  • However, any farm has the right to join the PS|PC programs early by doing a Full PS|PC Validation before 2023. The first PS|PC Validation must be a full, on-site validation.

About PigSAFE | PigCARE

In order to ensure that on-farm programs continue to reflect the remarkable work of producers and meet domestic and global consumer demand, Canadian producers and stakeholders have updated the Canadian Quality Assurance (CQA) and Animal Care Assessment (ACA) programs, with the support of provincial pork organizations and the Canadian Pork Council (CPC).

The updated CQA program is called PigSAFE and the updated ACA program is called PigCARE. Both are integrated under the Canadian Pork Excellence platform, and were officially launched in January 2019. The CQA/ACA program will end in 2023.
