    About the consultation
 
    The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has launched a 90-day public consultation on proposed changes to beer compositional standards under the Food and Drug Regulations.
 
    Objective
 
    The Government of Canada is moving forward to modernize its regulations related to beer compositional standards in order to better reflect the tastes and preferences of consumers, and allow for industry innovation.
 
    Proposed changes would remove duplication of the standard for ale, stout, porter and malt liquor, make it clearer for brewers which ingredients could be used, and allow industry to be more innovative in product development, while maintaining the integrity of beer.
 
    The proposed changes also include labelling changes that would require brewers to identify food allergens, gluten sources or added sulphites.
 
    Who is the focus of this consultation
 
    The CFIA wishes to hear from:
 
    Brewers
 
    Distributors and retailers, including provincial liquor boards
 
    Consumers and the general public
 
    Health Associations
 
    International partners
 
    How to participate
 
    Review the proposed changes. We welcome your feedback by email or mail by September 14, 2018.
 
    Correspondence should indicate “Beer Compositional Standards Consultation Canada Gazette Part I” in the subject line.
