Poultry and egg sector

Canada's poultry and egg industry is mainly composed of the following sectors: chicken, ducks and geese, hatching eggs, table and processed eggs, and turkey.

As the chicken, broiler hatching eggs, turkey, and egg sectors operate under supply management, each sector has its own national agency responsible for its orderly production and marketing in Canada.
