CAHSS Equine Network

Alongside various other sectors within the agriculture industry, Canadian Animal Health Surveillance System (CAHSS) has an Equine Network. The following is a description on the network:

While the role of horses, ponies and mules has continued to evolve over time, our focus on the health and well-being of these trusty animals has remained steadfast. Whether for sport, work or companionship, Canada is home to nearly one million equines.

The CAHSS Equine Network brings together stakeholders from across disciplines and across the country to advance disease surveillance for Canada’s equine population.

An effective equine surveillance system is essential to protect the health and well-being of horses and humans, safeguard the viability of the Canadian herd, ensure movement of horses and continuance of trade, and enhance the prosperity of the Canadian equine industry.

HWAC board members and contacts are part the Equine Network. Additionally, CAHSS operates a disease alert system for Canada. Click here to learn more about the initiatives undertaken by the CAHSS Equine Network.
