Status of ongoing avian influenza response by province

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has advised the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) of the confirmed presence of H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in Canada.

This serves as a strong reminder that  HPAI is spreading across the globe, and that anyone with birds must practice enhanced biosecurity procedures.

HPAI is not a food safety concern

There is no evidence to suggest that eating cooked poultry or eggs could transmit HPAI to humans.

If you suspect your birds have HPAI

Contact a veterinarian to determine if further action is needed, or your nearest CFIA Animal Health office.

Anyone who finds a sick or dead wild bird is encouraged to contact the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative (CWHC).
