According to the USDA's most recent Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) report, FAS/Canada projects moderate growth in chicken meat production in 2023.

This follows a challenging year in 2022 due to tight supplies of hatching eggs and day-old chicks, and increased avian influenza occurrence.

Calendar year 2023 import tariff rate quota volumes will exceed 116,000 metric tons (MT), of which 53,000 MT will be available exclusively to US suppliers under USMCA implementation.

FAS/Canada expects the United States to maintain a greater than 80% share of total Canadian chicken meat imports in 2023.
