Enhancing Emergency Management in Canada’s Livestock & Poultry Industry

The Animal Health Emergency Management (AHEM) project develops industry relevant resources to minimize the impacts of serious livestock diseases now and into the future. Our objective is to enhance the emergency management capabilities of Canada’s livestock industry, for both a continually evolving disease landscape and adverse events, through increased industry awareness, capacity, and confidence. Outcomes include:

  • Developing and testing new industry protocols
  • Developing emergency management resources (frameworks, plans and handbooks)
  • Delivering industry awareness tools and workshops
  • Facilitating online, practical training for private practitioners
