Canada announced a consultation on proposed changes to the Health of Animals Regulations (Identification and Traceability), which will run from March 18, 2023 until June 16, 2023. The consultation will seek feedback on proposed amendments to the Regulations which would add goats and cervids to the regulated species due to shared diseases with already regulated species, reduce the time period for reporting a disease incidence or outbreak event, add requirements for information about geographical location of sites where animals are located, and require domestic movement reporting for livestock.
