Abstract
Abstract Farmed animal welfare is an increasingly pressing issue both in Canada and abroad. This thesis surveys the current laws Canada has in place to protect farmed animal welfare. It looks at the Health of Animals Act and regulations as an example of why laws that should protect farmed animals are failing to do so. Pervasive problems with animal welfare legislation are identified and explained, including issues with the fragmented legal framework, and the strength, scope, and interpretation of laws.
