The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed a case of avian influenza in a poultry flock in southern Ontario on Monday. The number of birds affected was not disclosed.

Biosecurity remains the best tool for poultry producers and small flock owners to protect their flocks from avian influenza, the government release said.

The Ontario government continues to work with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, who is leading the disease response and the poultry industry to support producers and small flock owners and strengthen the high levels of biosecurity already implemented to reduce further spread of the disease.
