The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is developing Meat Safety Regulations under the Public Health Act. These new Regulations are intended to facilitate the availability of locally raised animals in the Northwest Territories for meat or meat products and set standards and other requirements to ensure safe handling practices to protect public health.
The Meat Safety Regulations will not apply to the harvest or sale of wild fish, game species, or reindeer. Existing federal and territorial legislation and any agreements which oversee the harvest and sale of wild game, reindeer and fish continue to apply to those activities and products.
