Provinces

In Canada, the federal authority to regulate the marketing of fluid milk (used for table milk and cream) in interprovincial and export trade is delegated to the provinces. The Dairy Products Marketing Regulations, made pursuant to the Canadian Dairy Commission Act, provide federal jurisdiction over the marketing of industrial milk and dairy products in interprovincial and export trade, and the basis for the necessary co-ordination and dovetailing of federal and provincial powers.

A federal/provincial agreement, the National Milk Marketing Plan, sets out the structure for the calculation of the national industrial milk production target required to meet the demand for domestic and export markets. The Plan also provides for the allocation of this quota to the provinces.

For information concerning specific provincial markets and policies, please contact the appropriate milk marketing board or agency.
