OIE Recognizes Canada’s BSE Surveillance and Eradication Programs
PARIS, France, May 22, 2007 - The Honourable Chuck Strahl, Minister of
Agriculture and Agri-Food and Minister Responsible for the Canadian Food
Inspection Agency, today issued the following statement from the 75th
General Session of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).

“I am very pleased to announce that Canada has been officially categorized
by the OIE as a Controlled BSE Risk country. This status clearly recognizes
the effectiveness of Canada’s surveillance, mitigation and eradication
measures.

This categorization acknowledges the work done by all levels of government,
the cattle industry, veterinarians, and ranchers to effectively manage and
eventually eradicate BSE in Canada. We will continue to work together on
initiatives, such as the recently announced enhanced feed ban, to maintain
and improve upon this status in the coming years.

The OIE’s science-based categorization system provides the framework for
fair and standardized international trade based on safeguards agreed to by
member countries. With this controlled risk categorization, we are confident
that our trading partners will continue to recognize and respond positively
to Canada’s commitment to animal health and food safety, and that Canadian
cattle will once again be sold throughout the world.”

For information about the OIE risk categorization system, please see the
fact sheet on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website at:
