The Government of Canada has put in place movement restrictions to prevent the spread of avian influenza in Saskatchewan. Avian influenza is a highly contagious disease in birds. Movement of birds, bird products, or things that may have come in contact with birds may cause the spread of avian influenza.
Movement of poultry and eggs purchased from grocery stores remains unrestricted.
The movement of birds, bird products and farm equipment within most of the province is unrestricted. However, permits may be required for the movement of these items within or from the 10 km Restricted Region indicated on the map below.
No birds can be moved out of the province or into the 3 km Infected Region indicated on the map below.
Movement of pet birds and hunter-killed birds out of the province is under review and individuals should contact the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for more information.
Permits are required to move live birds and hatching eggs from outside of Saskatchewan across the province to other parts of the country. No restrictions apply to the movement of poultry products and table eggs from outside of Saskatchewan across the province to other parts of the country.
