The Code of Practice consists of nationally developed guidelines for the care and handling of the different species of animal farms. The Codes contain recommendations for housing and management practices for farm animals as well as for transportation and processing.

The Codes are voluntary and are intended as educational tools in the promotion of sound husbandry and welfare practices. The Codes contain recommendations to assist farmers and others in the agriculture and food sector to compare and improve their own management practices. Institutions maintaining research herds also should be in compliance with the relevant Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCA) guidelines.
