Swine Health and Surveillance in Canada

With over 13 million pigs on Canadian farms, the swine sector is a large part of Canada’s agricultural economy and a key component contributor to our national food supply. It is also a leader in animal disease surveillance, and was the first in Canada to develop regional and national disease surveillance networks. CAHSS works closely to support the Canadian Swine Health Intelligence (CSHIN) Network, aimed at improving swine health and disease surveillance in Canada. It is co-funded by CAHSS, Canadian Pork Council, and the Canadian Association of Swine Veterinarians.
