CANADA TYPICAL AND ATYPICAL SCRAPIE REPORT TO MARCH 2010
Flocks infected with scrapie in Canada in 2010 The CFIA, in co-operation with provincial governments and industry, launched a national scrapie surveillance program in 2005. Under the program, producers are encouraged to report animals that die on the farm or exhibit symptoms of the disease.
In addition, scrapie is a reportable disease under the Health of Animals Regulations. This means that all suspected cases must be reported to the CFIA.
