Members Encouraged to Participate in Public Consultation Re: Proposed Quebec Regulations

In January, the Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food proposed new draft regulations: Animal Welfare and Safety Regulations and the designation of other Animals under the Animal Welfare and Safety Act for public consultation. The draft regulations replace the current regulation respecting the safety and welfare of cats and dogs.

This draft regulation outlines: license categories; conditions and restrictions for issuing and renewing licenses; health, safety and welfare standards for animal care; and identifies other animals that fall under the Animal Welfare and Safety Act.
 
Important aspects of this draft regulation include:
  • health, safety and welfare standards to which individuals could be held accountable to, including the care and housing of animals, special requirements for unaltered animals, and regulations regarding post-natal care,
  • classes of permits required for owners of 15 or more cats or dogs,
  • new classes of licenses required for operating a pet store,
  • and the processes in which those considered to be requiring of a permit must follow in order to obtain, renew, and pay for set permit.
Please submit your comments on the draft regulations by February 22, 2019 to:

Christine Barthe, Assistant Deputy Minister
Deputy Minister of Animal Health and Food Inspection
