Saskatchewan Premises Identification

The Saskatchewan Premises Identification (PID) system is an integral part of Canada's traceability system. PID facilitates linking livestock and poultry to geographic locations. It is critical to accurately prepare for, respond to and recover from animal health issues and emergencies.

PID is one of the three pillars of a livestock traceability system. The other two pillars are animal identification and animal movement reporting. The national traceability system is expected to encompass all livestock and poultry species produced in Canada.

Who Should Register

This includes farms, hobby farms, veterinary clinics that have farmed animals, poultry facilities, stables, animal markets, livestock feedlots, livestock dealer premises and many others.
