The Provincial Premises Registry (PPR) is an Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) initiative and the only official provincial registry for obtaining a Premises Identification Number (PID) for Ontario agri-food businesses.

Proposed amendments to federal traceability regulation would require identification of all premises where livestock may be loaded or unloaded from vehicles. 

The Provincial Premises Registry (PPR) is the destination for registering parcels of land in Ontario associated with agri-food activities. 

Agricultural business owners and operators can register their premises securely, easily and for free.

Angus GeoSolutions Inc (AGSI) is the registrar for the PPR acting on behalf of OMAFRA. 

The purpose of the PPR is to establish an accurate premises identification database by securely collecting, verifying and storing premises information and assigning unique Premises Identification Numbers (PID) to parcels of land in Ontario.

Premises Identification Number (PID): Livestock and Poultry 

PID is a way to link livestock and poultry to specific land locations (or premises).  It is critical for controlling and preventing the spread of animal diseases as well as managing other animal health emergencies (e.g. fires, floods, etc.).  

A PID number is associated with any parcel of land with its own legal land description, regardless of the livestock and poultry species present.  

Get your PID early (which is quick, easy and free to request your provincial government) to support traceability and protect our livestock and poultry industry.

Register or by calling the toll free number 1-855-MY PPR ID (1-855-697-7743).
