Latest bird flu situation
We are currently responding to cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in birds across Canada. Avian influenza is spreading across the globe. Anyone with birds must practice good biosecurity habits to protect poultry and prevent disease. HPAI is not a food safety concern. There is no evidence to suggest that eating cooked poultry or eggs could transmit HPAI to humans.
- Animals susceptible to H5N1 HPAI
- Notice to Industry – Reminder that feeding raw animal products to farmed fur-bearing animals poses a risk of transmitting disease
- Information for travellers: Restrictions from the United States
- Restrictions on the export of live birds
- Avian influenza in wild birds
- Countries recognized as being free from HPAI
