Egg Quality Assurance

The Egg Quality Assurance (EQA) program is an industry-wide initiative that highlights the rigorous requirements already in place on Canadian egg farms.  All EQA certified eggs will come from farms that have met the highest standards of our national Animal Care and Start Clean-Stay Clean™ programs.

The EQA mark is the Canadian egg industry’s commitment to excellence.  It is the culmination of decades of work to set up and implement quality assurance standards.  The EQA program is the result of extensive collaboration across the egg industry.  Representatives from producers, egg boards, graders and processors worked together to create something that provides one easy-to-identify mark that represents the standards in place on Canadian egg farms.

Egg Farmers of Alberta is proud to say that all registered egg farms in Alberta are EQA certified!
