Emergency Management


The goal of this theme is to provide a proactive, coordinated and comprehensive approach to managing agri-food emergencies in Ontario. Events such as SARS, BSE, swine and avian influenza, and invasive plant pests have shown Canadians the profound impact that outbreaks can have on agriculture, the environment, human health and the economy. Emergency Management research encompasses issues related to: zoonoses and public health, foreign animal disease, plant pests, and food safety. The focus is on disease agents and pests whose sudden emergence or re-emergence in Ontario requires an immediate and comprehensive response.
