At the request of [applicant name] and as required by Notice to Importers - Chicken and Chicken Products, I performed the following procedures in connection with [applicant name] application form for a chicken TRQ allocation for next quota year allocated to processors of products not on the Import Control List, based on the reference period of September 1 to August 31 immediately preceding the new quota year ("the application").

[Name of person responsible for the application] responded that the units produced as stated on the application were sold for consumption in Canada as a finished product, pertained to production by plants in Canada which were owned and operated by [applicant name], excluded production for which only packaging or assembling was performed, excluded chicken products containing spent fowl and excluded chicken used to produce products not on the Import Control List which were included in any application for a portion of the chicken TRQ allocated to distributors (on an equal share basis), processors or the food-service sector (on a market share basis).

These procedures do not constitute an audit of the application and therefore I express no opinion on the application.
