Ontario Government Proposes New Animal Welfare Legislation

The Ontario government recently introduced new animal welfare legislation known as the Provincial Animal Welfare Services Act (PAWS Act) to replace the former OSPCA Act. The Act is intended to impose tougher penalties for animal abuse and neglect. If the Act is passed, Ontario would be the first province in Canada to introduce a provincially operated enforcement system that will include locally deployed provincial inspectors, and specialized inspectors for agriculture, zoos, aquariums, and equines.  

Ontario members are encouraged to view the Bill—currently at second reading debate—and contact their local MPP and/or the Solicitor General if you have any questions or concerns.    

If passed, the proposed legislation is expected to be implemented by January 1, 2020.
