Protecting Animals

We need to move forward on improving protections for our animals, and species around the world.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Introduce legislation to end cosmetic testing on animals as soon as 2023 and phase out toxicity testing on animals by 2035.
  • Work with partners to curb illegal wildlife trade and end elephant and rhinoceros tusk trade in Canada.
  • Introduce legislation to protect animals in captivity.
  • Ban the live export of horses for slaughter.
  • Work with our partners to help women and children fleeing violence stay united with their companion animals.
