Biosecurity Program

The BC Poultry Biosecurity Program complements and enhances the current biosecurity practices of farmers and the requirements laid out in the On-Farm Food Safety Program (OFFSP) and the Flock Care Program (FCP). Led by BC’s poultry industry, this initiative helps farmers identify biosecurity risks on their farms and encourages them to adopt beneficial biosecurity practices (BBPs) that minimize, to the extent possible, the risk of disease organisms moving onto or off poultry farms thereby securing the health and sustainability of the entire industry.

The program is available to all regulated poultry operations throughout the province. As participants in this program, farmers are able to identify their operation’s biosecurity strengths, prioritize any potential risks to biosecurity, and take advantage of tools and techniques available to manage those risks.
