"The Canadian Biosafety Guidelines have been developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) as an ongoing series of biosafety and biosecurity themed guidance documents. In Canada, most facilities where human and terrestrial animal pathogens or toxins are handled and stored are regulated by the PHAC and the CFIA under the Human Pathogens and Toxins Act (HPTA), Human Pathogens and Toxins Regulations (HPTR), Health of Animals Act (HAA), and Health of Animals Regulations (HAR). Regulated facilities are required to develop and maintain a biosecurity plan, in accordance with the requirements established in the Canadian Biosafety Standard (CBS), 2nd Edition. The Canadian Biosafety Handbook (CBH), 2nd Edition aims to provide stakeholders with support and guidance on how to conduct biosecurity risk assessments and the core components of a robust biosecurity plan to appropriately address biosecurity risks with the pathogens and toxins in their possession.

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) conducts biosafety and biosecurity inspections to verify organizations’ compliance with the Human Pathogens and Toxins Act (HPTA), the Human Pathogens and Toxins Regulations (HPTR), and the applicable sections of the Health of Animals Act and Health of Animals Regulations (HAA/HAR).

The inspections allow PHAC to determine if an organization meets the conditions of its
Pathogen and Toxin Licence, as well as to identify deficiencies and provide corrective
measures to prevent serious safety risks.

The Intermodal Surface Security Oversight Program works with stakeholders to improve the security of Canada’s intermodal and surface transportation systems. It focuses on the security of Canada’s passenger and freight railways, urban transit, and international bridges and tunnels. The program prioritizes inspections using a risk-based process, which is also used to determine where and how to use resources. This risk-based approach is especially valuable since the program does not have enough resources to inspect every site and facility each year.
