Algeria

Restrictions imposed for live poultry and hatching eggs originating from or transiting Primary Control Zones (PCZs) in Canada affected by avian influenza.

Armenia

An import of turkey hatching eggs was allowed from Canada (except the province of Nova Scotia). This is believed to be a one-time acceptance as it is a small market.

Australia

The Australian Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) formally recognized Canada's highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) zoning. The zone where the flock of origin is located is approved for export if the source county is free of HPAI in commercial poultry and there have been no HPAI outbreaks in commercial poultry within a 40 kilometer radius of the source premises.

Bangladesh

Shipments were allowed from Canada (except province of Nova Scotia) in March 2022. This is believed to be a one-time acceptance as the certificate has not been changed from country freedom from Avian Influenza.

Barbados

Restrictions imposed on personal exports of live poultry and poultry products from Canada. This does not affect commercial exports. An additional statement was added to the poultry product certificates that the products did not originate from any area/farm under quarantine or surveillance for Avian Influenza.
