New procedure: Export of pet birds to the US

Due to a detection of high pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) in an exhibition farm in Canada, exports of pet birds will now require an import permit issued by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and a Canadian veterinary health certificate. Any pet birds originating from, or travelling through, the restricted zone will also require a 30 day quarantine in the US.

Due to HPAI in the Atlantic, export to the EU is suspended from the restricted zone in Nova Scotia.

Canadian exporters are required to use the Trade Control and Expert System New Technology (TRACES NT) as of January 15, 2022, for export certificates for all food and animal commodities destined to the EU. For more information about TRACES, refer to the CFIA web page Exporting food and animal products to the European Union.

Note: Pet birds are not certified through TRACES NT and will continue to be certified for export using paper certificates.

Exporters are required to complete Part I of the appropriate certificate in TRACES NT and continue to request export services (inspection and certificate issuance) from their local CFIA office.

Export certificates are accessed through the TRACES NT and are listed below.

If you are planning an export, please contact the Animal health offices in your area to get further information.

Note – Only the specific certificates listed on Merlin/CFIA public websites for export of a particular commodity to the European Union (EU) are to be endorsed by CFIA veterinarians. A number of other certificates, which are not listed on Merlin/CFIA public websites, exist within the EU system (TRACES NT). These certificates should not be submitted by exporters for CFIA endorsement. If a certificate which is not listed on Merlin/CFIA public website is submitted, it will be refused endorsement by the CFIA veterinarians.
