Highly pathogenic avian influenza has been confirmed in a wild bird in southern Ontario, bringing the number of provinces with positive cases to six.

“On March 21, 2022, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) reported highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), subtype H5N1, in a sample taken from a red-tailed hawk that was found in the Region of Waterloo,” says a veterinary advisory distributed by Ontario’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs this week.

“The hawk was reported to be showing neurological signs and was euthanized.”
