Certification & Accreditation

The BC SPCA standards blend current research in animal welfare science with practical protocols, and have been developed in consultation with animal welfare scientists, veterinarians and industry groups.

SPCA Certified

Our SPCA Certified program offers certification for the farming industry and provides consumers with assurance that the food products they choose come from farms with high animal welfare standards in place.

We currently have standards for certification of beef cattle, dairy cattle, sheep, pigs, turkeys, broiler (meat) chickens and egg-laying chickens.
