Livestock Community Sales Act

The Livestock Community Sales Act and Regulation 729 provides for the licensing of community sales of consigned livestock in Ontario. Legislation exists to provide confidence in an orderly market, provide a disease control effort, monitor the humane handling of livestock and ensure financial stability of the licensed operator.

The Act and Regulations provide for an inspection system whereby appointed veterinarians and inspectors examine livestock, facilities and handling techniques to meet certain standards, to ensure that livestock is marketed in compliance with mandated programs and Codes of Practice.
