Strengthening Canada's response to food safety issues

OTTAWA, ON, Nov. 27, 2020 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada has officially launched the Canadian Food Safety Information Network (CFSIN), a new food safety platform that will help food safety experts from across the country work together to better anticipate, detect and respond to food safety issues and foodborne illness incidents. The newly up and running network is Canada's first hub for laboratory test data that is shared by federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) organizations, providing food safety partners across Canada access to the most comprehensive and up-to-date food safety data. The CFSIN, led by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA),A provides new digital tools, such as environmental scanning, automated food safety reports and shared software for analysis. These tools will support effective and efficient management of complex and fast-moving multi-jurisdictional food safety outbreaks and emergencies in Canada.A  By harnessing the power of shared data, CFSIN gives the CFIA and its partners opportunities to receive earlier warnings of food safety issues and fosters a more coordinated response effort for these events. This proactive and preventive approach will help reduce the potential impact of foodborne illnesses and diseases in Canadians.Quotes
