About us

Canadians love Canadian eggs. They come from local farmers who ensure our eggs are among the best in the world for quality and freshness. Our uniquely Canadian system of supply management makes all this possible and also supports thousands of Canadian jobs and sustains vibrant rural communities.

Our farmers produce over 837 million dozen eggs annually to meet growing consumer demand. A strong industry makes it possible for our farmers to make long-term investments in on-farm efficiencies and to drive innovation through R&D.

We are a national organization that represents Canada’s more than 1,200 regulated egg farmers in all ten provinces and the Northwest Territories. Created in 1972 under the federal Farm Products Agencies Act, Egg Farmers of Canada manages the supply of eggs, promotes eggs and develops standards for egg farming in Canada.

The Egg Farmers of Canada Way

Egg Farmers of Canada believes in the inextricable link between social license and business success. We nurture our acceptance nationally, and in the broader international community—not just because it is the right thing to do but because it bolsters our aspirations of profitability and enhanced socio-economic development.

Legitimacy with our stakeholders and customers drives us each and every day. We respect and honour the trust the Canadian public provides to our industry under the system of supply management. Everything—from operations to policy development to governance—is approached with the utmost regard for: the communities, environment and society in which we operate; the well-being of our animals; and the health, safety and satisfaction of the millions of Canadians who enjoy and depend upon our product every single day.


To position the Canadian egg industry as a leader in Canada’s agricultural future through sustainable growth, continuous improvement and social responsibility, working collaboratively under the system of supply management to uphold the interests of all those who depend upon and enjoy our products.


A world where everyone—whether it be due to want or need—can enjoy the immeasurable benefits of the humble egg.
