Improving Risk Management through Data and Digital Tools

February 28, 2019 at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Location:5345 Herzberg Laboratories


Canadian Food Inspection Agency is a science-based regulatory organization dedicated to safeguarding food, animals and plants for the health and well-being of Canada’s people, environment and economy. The recent technological revolution and the resulting digitization of global supply chain have presented an unique opportunity for the Agency to launch several data-related initiatives to gather intelligence and effectively manage emerging risks. These include the establishment of Canadian Food Safety Information Network and Integrated Risk Management. Details of these initiatives, as well as challenges and further opportunities to leverage principles of data science will be discussed.
