Update on Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in Alberta

Alert Banner

The Avian Influenza Risk Level in Alberta has recently been changed to RED. For information, see:

There is no effective vaccine or cure for this disease, which can be spread to farmed flocks during wild bird migratory season. Biosecurity is essential for protecting your flocks and preventing the disease’s spread. More information on reducing the risk of HPAI is below.

HPAI is a reportable disease, so if you suspect or confirm a case in your flock, you must report it to the CFIA or the Office of the Chief Provincial Veterinarian.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is leading the investigation and response.
