Activity Report 2019-2020
‘’A year rich in accomplishments which, at the end, was marked by the outbreak of a pandemic, underlining the importance of being equipped with effective, assured and harmonized systems for a quick intervention that can limit the inherent risks of a health crisis.’’
It is with great pleasure that we would like to present to you the 2019-2020 edition of the Agri-Traçabilité Québec Activity Report.
The document presents a summary of operations and reports on the various issues and events that have been central to ATQ's activities this past year.
The identification and traceability system for livestock in Quebec is one of the tools that the province is equipped with to effectively manage a health crisis. The fundamental role of such a system consists of identifying and quickly isolating the source of a contagion and limiting the propagation of any sickness.
Together, the maturity of the system, its reliability, and the information it contains relative to premises and animals, as well the development of related tools, allow for the improvement in the biosecurity of farms, the wellbeing and health of animals, and the safety of produce.
The Canadian pork sector is a good example of innovation and proactivity in traceability and, in this regard, in this yearly report we wish to underline our 10 years of partnership in service to a visionary industry in the implementation of identification and traceability data.
