The objective of the export program is to ensure that only healthy animals and animal products and by-products which meet the import health requirements of an importing country are exported from Canada, and that in the case of live animals, that they are transported in a humane manner.

A list of valid export certificates for animals and birds can be found on the following links. If you are planning an export, please contact the Animal health offices in your area to get a copy of the export certificate and verify that the export certificate is still valid, that it applies to your export, and that there are no disease outbreaks or other events that may cause exports to be suspended. Please note that export conditions from some of the certificates to the USA are provided for information purposes only.
