Fairs and exhibitions present an opportunity for human and farm animal interaction, either planned or incidental that may result in potential contamination, litigation, financial loss, and liability if the producers of these events and programs fail to reduce risk and protect their visitors.
The Consumer Protection Program for farm animal contact at fairs, exhibitions and shows is designed to provide useful and interactive information and tools to enhance consumer protection at events that feature or promote human contact with farm animals.
C.A.F.E. will be delivering this program across Canada with the assistance of the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE), Technical Solutions International (TSI), the provincial agricultural associations, and C.A.F.E. members.
C.A.F.E. encourages all organizations to participate in the program’s activities so we can all work together to safeguard the future of the industry.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) is pleased to participate and support this project. AAFC is committed to working with our industry partners to increase public awareness of the importance of the agriculture and agri-food industry in Canada.
