Livestock Identification and Commerce Act (LICA)
The Livestock identification and Commerce Act (LICA) and the Livestock Identification and Commerce General Regulation resulted from the consolidation and modernization of the following Acts and Regulations which were repealed in 2009 and replace with LICA:
- Brands Act

- Livestock Dealer's and Livestock Dealers' Agents Regulation

LICA was the result of 4 years of industry and industry-government consultation and co-operation where all sectors of the beef cattle industry and the horse industry were actively engaged with each other and with Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development and Livestock Identification Services Ltd.

In addition to being the delegated authority for LICA, LIS has also been delegated certain responsibilities of the Minister and of Inspectors under the Stray Animals Act. These responsibilities may include capturing, transporting, inspecting, impounding, and disposing of stray livestock, and distributing the proceeds from the sale of stray animals.
