Support Program for the Eradication of Chronic Wasting Disease in Cervids

Description of the Support Program for the Eradication of Chronic Wasting Disease in Cervids

The Government of Quebec has given La Financière agricole du Québec the task of implementing the Cervid Producer Support Program for the Eradication of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). This program offers financial aid to cervid producers affected by the measures taken to eradicate CWD.

There are two categories of aid under this program:

  • The first compensates cervid producers ordered to slaughter and dispose of animals under the Animal Health Protection Act.
  • The second financially supports cervid producers required to implement sanitary measures stipulated under the Animal Health Protection Act.
