Supply management is a uniquely Canadian approach to the agricultural production of dairy, poultry and eggs which benefits Canadian consumers, farmers, and processors. Under this system, Canadians are provided with a consistent choice of safe, nutritious and high-quality eggs and egg products at reasonable prices, processors get a reliable supply of product and registered egg farmers get a fair return for their eggs from the marketplace. As a result, Canada’s egg farming industry is one of the few agricultural sectors that is self-sufficient, requiring no government subsidies.
The Canadian egg industry is characterized by continuous progress, innovation and social responsibility. Egg farmers invest in comprehensive on-farm food safety programs, contribute to their community and local economy, and fund research in human nutrition, poultry health, environmental practices, economics and animal welfare.
