Canada: info session for backyard poultry flock owners
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ), invite owners of small or backyard poultry flocks to attend an information session on how to help prevent and detect poultry diseases, such as AI.
Area bird owners and the general public are welcome to join from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, 11 June, 2008, at the Saint-Isidore Municipal Centre located at 130 Coulombe road, Saint-Isidore, Québec. Veterinarians from the CFIA and MAPAQ will be available to answer questions.
A series of presentations will also be held. Topics include preventing the spread and introduction of disease, how to spot the signs of illness and what to do if a disease is detected.
Additional sessions are being held across Canada later in 2008.
