Egg producers to be registered
1 No person who raises or keeps laying hens shall engage in the marketing of eggs in Manitoba unless that person is currently registered as an egg producer with this Board.
Egg producers to be licensed
2 No person shall raise or keep laying hens unless that person is currently licensed as an egg producer with this Board.
3 No person shall be entitled to be registered or to be licensed as an egg producer unless such person has been allotted, or is entitled to be allotted, a laying hen quota by this Board.
Form of application
4 Every application for registration and every application for a licence as an egg producer shall be in writing, in the form prescribed by this Board for such purpose, shall be signed by the applicant, and shall be forwarded to the head office of this Board.
Licence fee payable
5 Each licensed egg producer shall pay to the Board, immediately following the end of each fiscal year of the Board during which that producer was a licensed producer ("that fiscal year"), a licence fee for that fiscal year, determined by
(a) multiplying a number equal to the maximum number of laying hens comprising the laying hen quota allotted to that producer during that fiscal year by the rate of lay multiplier established in the Laying Hen Quota Order for that fiscal year;
(b) multiplying the resultant number by 29.0¢; and
(c) subtracting from that amount an amount equal to the fees paid by that producer to the Board during that fiscal year pursuant to the Egg Administration Fee Regulation and to the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency pursuant to the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency Levies for Manitoba Regulation.
Reduction of licence fee
6 If the laying hen quota allotted to a licensed egg producer during a fiscal year of the Board is reduced during that fiscal year, the Board may reduce the licence fees payable by that producer for that fiscal year to reflect the impact of such reduction.
Producer's obligation to remit licence fees
7 Each licensed egg producer shall pay to the Board at its office, Suite 18, 5 Scurfield Boulevard, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3Y 1G3, all licence fees and additional licence fees imposed on that producer under this Regulation not later than seven (7) days from the date on which such producer receives a demand from the Board to pay such licence fees and additional licence fees.
