British Columbia residents can apply to grow up to 2,000 chickens per year for farm direct marketing. The permit administration fee is $20 and permit holders must report their placement and slaughter records.
Note: In BC, all meat offered for sale must be processed at a provincially or federally inspected and approved facility.
About BCCMB: The British Columbia Chicken Marketing Board (BCCMB) is a non-profit agricultural commodity board that monitors and regulates the production and marketing of chicken in British Columbia. Every year we licence over 325 broiler quota holders in BC and 15 primary poultry processors. We also provide permits to approximately 200 small-lot holders who grow 2,000 birds or less.
