Proactively protect farmed animals

British Columbians are demanding transparency and accountability for the care of farmed animals, but the province has no proactive, independent compliance system to monitor and report on the welfare of farmed animals. In 2023 and early 2024, the BC SPCA participated in the Ministry of Agriculture and Food’s Farmed Animal Welfare Advisory Committee, along with farmers, veterinarians, academics, meat processors and representatives from the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC).

We’ve asked B.C.’s political parties to implement the Advisory Committee’s recommendations in their entirety and with sustainable funding to improve animal welfare on B.C. farms, increase public trust in local agriculture and support farmers. Find out more about farmed animal welfare.
