Comment on: Proposed national disease control program for equine infectious anemia
The CFIA has been collaborating with provincial, territorial and equine industry representatives, among others, over the past few years to develop a new approach to address program issues. One of the main issues has been the low volume of owner-requested testing (surveillance) among western Canada equine owners, even though many positive cases of EIA have been identified in that area. As a result, a key recommendation from the EIA working group was for the CFIA to develop a program that includes some mandatory EIA testing requirements for certain movements of horses in western Canada.
Who is the focus of this consultation
The CFIA wishes to hear from all equine stakeholders, including:
- horse owners and riders
- land and stable owners
- equine event organizers
- equine transporters
