Shane Carry: Variety Becomes the Perfect Fit

picture - Shane Carry

Shane Carry has worn many hats throughout his young career. He began as a food inspector straight out of university but now works as an advisor with the CFIA's regulatory and parliamentary affairs unit. "It has given me a great sense of how the Agency works, as well as government as a whole," he says.

Shane has worked for the CFIA over eight years and says that he is challenged by the range of files that cross his desk. "My job is different every day and that appeals to me very much," he says.

There is also an atmosphere of teamwork at the CFIA, which Shane says is hard to duplicate. While the Agency works to protect the interests of Canadians, he notes, "It doesn't seem like work because you're working with friends."
