 Animal welfare in Canada


The laws governing and treating nonhuman animals in Canada are referred to as animal care and rights in Canada.

 The organization World Animal Protection has ranked Canada's animal welfare regulations as "bad." 

According to a poll conducted on behalf of Mercy for Animals, the overwhelming majority of Canadians support stronger animal rights.


The key federal animal welfare law in Canada is found in sections 444 to 447 of the Criminal Code. Causing "unnecessary discomfort, suffering, or injury to an animal or bird" and "causing harm or injury by wilful negligence" are also prohibited under the Code.

Cattle, horses, mules, asses, pigs, sheep, and goats all have special rights under the Criminal Code, but chicken and fish, which make up the majority of animals raised and killed for food in Canada, do not. 

The federal Health of Animals Act addresses animal care during transportation and loading. 


This legislation forbids overcrowding and establishes a maximum time limit for an animal to be transported without food, water, or rest: 52 hours for ruminants and 36 hours for monogastric animals. The federal Meat Inspection Act establishes inspection and slaughter rules. Electric prods are allowed, and chickens and domesticated rabbits do not have to be knocked out before being slaughtered. Canada outlawed the use of gestation crates in 2014.


The provisions for farm animal protection in Canada vary by province. Animal agriculture, on the other hand, is typically excluded from provincial animal protection legislation's anti-cruelty and duty of care requirements.There is no clear federal law that governs animal research. 

Animals used in testing are excluded from duty of treatment and/or bans on causing pain in Ontario, Manitoba, Newfoundland, Labrador, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.


Canada earned a D on World Animal Protection's Animal Protection Index in 2014 and again in 2020, out of a potential grade of A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.
