Important Notice: COVID-19

16 March, 2020 -  As Canadians prepare to do what is necessary to ensure the success of “flattening the curve” of COVID-19 illness, we want to assure you that Laboratory Services’ Agriculture and Food Laboratory (AFL) is deeply committed to this initiative.

We strive to continue to provide you peace of mind through excellence in scientific analysis for your samples and products. We understand the importance of our role in protecting the supply chain of Ontario’s agriculture and food products. The AFL’s mature and detailed Business Continuity Plan, along with that of the University of Guelph will guide us through these uncertain times. 

The AFL remains open for business at this time, during our regular hours for receiving samples - Monday to Friday 7:30 am to 6:00 pm. (Except statutory holidays).

We are working with our suppliers, and our regulatory and business partners to maintain our highest level of service to you.  It is critical that we protect our customers and our staff alike. As such, we are doing our best to ensure that our team is following all government-issued travel advisories and recommendations, including social distancing. 

Should we need to modify any of our operations that may impact our service to you, you will be notified, and provided the mitigation options for the situation. Together we can protect each other, our families and our communities as we progress to successful health and business recovery from COVID-19.
