    Canada's food safety system operates in a multi-jurisdictional setting involving federal, provincial, territorial and municipal authorities. Because of this shared jurisdiction, a comprehensive agreement entitled Food-borne Illness Outbreak Response Protocol outlines the roles and responsibilities of all governments that are involved in the investigation of a food safety emergency. It clarifies the roles of all participants in the investigation and details an integrated approach in response to n ational and regional food-borne illness outbreaks. For transboundary situations, Canada endorses and follows the Codex Guidelines for the Exchange of Information in Food Control Emergency Situations. As for domestic products, the Protocol serves as the guidance document to address a national food safety emergency involving an imported product.
