Canadian Animal Health Surveillance System

The Council has submitted funding applications in order to support the transition of the Canadian Animal Health Surveillance System (CAHSS) to the Council. The Canadian Animal Health Surveillance System (CAHSS) is an initiative of the National Farmed Animal Health and Welfare Council (NFAHWC), with broad based collaborative support of industry and governments.  CAHSS has benefitted from the exceptional support of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, however the long-term plan was to manage CAHSS outside of government in the true spirit of collaborative partnership.  We have been working closely with CAHSS directors and networks to develop a transition plan and progress to the next phase of CAHSS in Canada. 

CAHSS has been designed to fill the need for strengthened animal health surveillance in Canada, as identified in the NFAHWC's report, "Surveillance in a Time of Transition in Farmed Animal Health".
