In Quebec, a traceability system has been implemented from the farm to the abattoir in the bovine (2002), ovine (2004), and cervid (2009) sectors.  During the year 2017-2018, ATQ's database has recorded the following transactions for the 13,635 registered producers:

  • 3,101,051 declarations
  • 11,098 orders for tags and accessories
  • 794,030 tags sold

For more than 16 years now, Agri-Traçabilité Quebec has been responsible for implementing and managing Quebec's livestock identification and traceability system.  To do so, ATQ provides daily support to producers as well as other industry stakeholders for their traceability obligations.  Our team is constantly innovating in order to increase added value for producers and overall industry while contributing to food safety for the benefit of consumers.
