The EFC Board of Directors approved a motion in November that seeks prior approval for a quota increase of 869,934 birds nationally, to be effective December 31, 2017 (week 1/18). Alberta’s share of this allocation amounts to a total of 124,211 layers.

EFC has submitted the appropriate quota order amendments to Farm Products Council of Canada (FPCC) for prior approval. The quota increase will not take effect until EFA has received confirmation that the quota has been approved by FPCC and ratified by EFC. At that time, all producers will be notified in writing. Please note that EFA staff and Directors will not provide any information about the quota increase over the phone.
