African swine fever
African swine fever (ASF) is a highly contagious viral disease of domestic and wild pigs. There is no treatment or vaccine. An outbreak in Canada would have a significant economic impact on the country and the Canadian pork industry.
In Canada, ASF is a reportable disease under the Health of Animals Act. All cases must be reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Need to report a suspected case? Contact your local CFIA Animal Health Office.
African swine fever has never been found in Canada and we intend to keep it that way.
