Clostridioides (Clostridium) difficile is a spore-forming anaerobic bacte- rium that causes severe intestinal diseases in humans. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of the first C. difficile foodborne type strain (PCR ribotype 078) isolated from food animals in Canada in 2004, which has 100% similarity to the ge- nome sequence of the historic human clinical strain M120.
