A draft of the Plant and Animal Health Strategy released by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is now available online for consultation. Given the increasingly complex and constantly changing risks to Canada's plant and animal resources, the goal of the Strategy is to ensure their ongoing protection, thereby contributing to economic growth and the protection of human health and the environment. This will be accomplished by increasing collaboration and coordination among all those who play a role in plant and animal health, as well as by making prevention a priority. Members are encouraged to participate in the on-line survey or join one of the upcoming webinars. The consultation will be open until April 30, 2017.
