Our project at a glance
AHEM is sparking significant collaboration with federal government organizations (AAFC, CFIA), provincial government departments of agriculture and as well provincial commodity groups across Canada.
This project aligns with several national strategic initiatives, including the Livestock Market Interruption Strategy (LMIS) led by AAFC, and the Plant and Animal Health Strategy (PAHS) facilitated by CFIA.
Not only will AHEM help bring key stakeholders together, it will strengthen the livestock industry as a whole by equipping associations and producers with new knowledge and resources and create an opportunity for sharing of experiences and learnings from others.
