Annual Adjustment of CFIA Service Fees

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) adjusts its service fees annually based on the Consumer Price Index in accordance with the Service Fees Act. This requirement ensures that the CFIA’s service fees keep pace with the costs of providing services.

The next annual adjustment will result in an increase of the service fees by 6.8% as of March 31, 2024.

This fee increase reflects the percentage change over 12 months in the April All-items CPI for Canada, published by Statistics Canada, for the previous fiscal year.

More information on Adjusting service fees for inflation is available on the CFIA’s website.
