Isolated Communities Get New Meat Transition Support

Government is now providing additional support for small operators applying for Class C licenses in isolated communities that do not have access to licensed slaughter capacity. New applicants who meet these criteria can now qualify for a Class C license immediately, and will have until December 31, 2009 to submit their construction plans. A second update to the regulation provides support to those who have already made significant investments in becoming fully licensed, by providing a 100-kilometre protective zone around fully-licensed plants.
