Another HPAI case confirmed in Nova Scotia

15 February, 2022

On February 11, 2022, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI), subtype H5N1, at a mixed farm in western Nova Scotia, which includes poultry and products for local sale.
This follows confirmed detections of the same strain of AI in Newfoundland and Labrador and more recently in wild birds, a backyard flock and a commercial farm found in Nova Scotia.
