Quebec Premises Identification Portal
The Quebec premises identification portal is the only official website that allows agri-food businesses to obtain a premises identification (PID) number in order to meet the requirements of the traceability regulation. Obtaining a PID is free and the service is available in English and French.
The Quebec premises identification portal allows farm owners, operators or tenants to apply to obtain a unique PID number per land parcel in a simple and secure manner. You can register your operation by cmpleting the online form or by calling the ATQ Customer Service Department.
- For regulated species in Quebec, bovine (milk ans meat), ovine and cervid: a PID number is required (mandatory) for traceability reporting to the provincial database SimpliTRACE;
- For the pig sector: a PID number is required (mandatory) for traceability reporting to the national database PigTRACE;
- For goat and bison production: obtaining a premises number is currently voluntary.
