The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) reported two cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza in La Jacques-Cartier, Quebec. The first was reported on 28 June, the second on 3 July. The number or type of bird was not disclosed.

Other infected zones include three in the province of British Columbia, and one in Saskatchewan. Across the country, most avian influenza primary control zones have been revoked.

There are restrictions on poultry coming into the country as well, especially from impacted US states. All raw poultry and all poultry products and by-products that are not fully cooked, including eggs and raw pet foods, sourced, processed, or packaged from the restricted zones in select US states are under restriction until further notice, said CFIA.
