The CFIA works with provincial governments and industry to conduct regular Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) surveillance. Ongoing provincial surveillance for CWD varies with each particular province's perceived threat and infection status. Testing of cervids slaughtered in abattoirs is mandatory in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Yukon; it is targeted elsewhere.
In addition, CWD is a reportable disease under the Health of Animals Regulations. This means that all suspected cases must be reported to the CFIA.
