Canada and the U.S. will co-operate to recognize each other's zoning measures when it comes to outbreaks of contagious animal diseases.
The new agreement announced this morning in Winnipeg by Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, means that if and when there is an eradication zone set up anywhere in the U.S. or Canada imports and exports of live animals and animal parts or by-products would be able to occur from elsewhere in the country.
The development is part of a larger initiative between the two countries to better align regulations.
