COVID-19 Updates: Protecting Albertans from the Omicron variant.
We’re gathering feedback on the development of a Made in Alberta, by Albertans label that will help shoppers quickly identify products made in our province, and support local businesses in Alberta’s economic recovery.
Most provinces in Canada, except Alberta, have voluntary food labelling programs that help consumers easily identify locally produced, processed, and manufactured products. With the help of Albertans and stakeholders, we can develop a recognized voluntary label with consistent standards applied to all Alberta-made products.
Feedback will be collected on how to implement the voluntary labelling program, including criteria for using the label.
Survey open from January 10 to February 19, 2022
Results under review
