In the coming weeks, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will undertake an initiative to modernize its food labelling approach. The CFIA—with input from consumers, industry and other stakeholders—will conduct a review of food labelling regulations, guidelines and policies including claims such as use of the term “local”.
In the interim, the CFIA is adopting an interim policy which recognizes “local” as:

food produced in the province or territory in which it is sold, or
food sold across provincial borders within 50 km of the originating province or territory
