About Us

PFAC was established in 1970. For the past 51 years, the pet food industry has changed significantly, growing into what it is today. From the first pet foods sold through livestock feed supply stores to over $1 billion in exports to almost 90 countries, PFAC represents and supports its members to continue to grow and provide safe, nutritious and high quality pet food and treats to the world’s pets.

The Pet Food Association of Canada is a member based industry trade association that supports its members by providing regulatory support and advocating on their behalf. PFAC also provides networking opportunities, information, and strong working relationships with the Canadian government.  PFAC works closely with its members, government and international partners to facilitate and minimize barriers to trade, develop standards, and grow the pet food industry in Canada and around the world.

PFAC is a founding member of the Global Alliance of Pet Food Associations (GAPFA). Working together with other pet food associations around the world, from the United States to Australia, Mexico to Japan and everywhere in between, PFAC contributes to a global effort, working towards a common global standard for pet food trade.
