Government of Canada: Reducing the risk of African swine fever

The Government of Canada is taking a collaborative approach to prevent the entry of African swine fever (ASF) to Canada by:

  • sharing information across government and industry
  • supporting organizations in their work
  • focussing on preventative action and a strong response, should ASF enter Canada
