Notice of public hearings as part of an inquiry into the merits of establishing a Canadian pork promotion and research agency

The Farm Products Council of Canada (FPCC) has received from the Canadian Pork Council a proposal to establish a Canadian pork promotion and research agency, to be funded by levies applied on hogs marketed domestically as well as on imported pork and pork products.

The Council, pursuant to section 8 of the Farm Products Agencies Act (the Act), hereby provides notice that, pursuant to the direction of the Chairman, a panel, consisting of two members of the FPCC, will hold public hearings to determine the merits of establishing such an agency, pursuant to section 39 of the Act.

The Panel will inquire into and review

  • (a) the current structure of the Canadian pork industry and the degree of support among producers and importers for establishing an agency;
  • (b) the potential effects of establishing a national agency on the operations of producers and importers;
  • (c) the means for ensuring that an agency has due regard for the interests of producers, importers and consumers;
  • (d) the degree and nature of federal and provincial cooperation required to implement the proposed national marketing plan, the efficient dovetailing of levy collection under federal and provincial jurisdictions and its consistency with the Agreement on Internal Trade;
  • (e) the collection of levies on domestic live hogs as well as on imported pork and pork products, including its consistency with Canada’s rights and obligations under international trade agreements; and
  • (f) whether any restrictions should be placed on the activities of a pork promotion and research agency or on any of the powers to be exercised pursuant to section 42 of the Act.
