Feds fund national ID data system

staff / The federal government will put up $500,000 to create a single national data management system for livestock traceability.

Pierre Lemieux, the federal parliamentary secretary for agriculture, announced the funding for the creation of a new single system, Canadian Agri-Traceability Services (CATS) at the Calgary Stampede.

CATS will provide traceability data services for both the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency and Quebec’s provincial traceability agency, thereby cutting the two organizations’ costs and simplifying reporting, the government said.
