Description:
The market for broiler chickens in Canada is supply-managed. This means that a quota system is in place to ensure a consistent supply of chicken for the marketplace and a steady, fair return to the farmer. This system has been in place for chicken produced in Canada since 1965 and it is administered by Chicken Farmers of Canada  a marketing board.
