Canadian Animal Health Institute

About Us

The Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI) is the trade association representing the developers, manufacturers and distributors of animal pharmaceuticals, biologics, feed additives and animal pesticides in Canada. CAHI is a national association, whose members are responsible for sales of approximately 95% of the animal health product market in Canada. Sales by CAHI member companies in 2015 were approximately $750 million.

There are over 60 members in the CAHI. They fall into two categories, Full Members (companies that market licensed medications with animal health claims) and Associate Members (allied industries that include research firms, public relations companies, consultants and pet food manufacturers to name a few). A full listing of CAHI members can be found in this section, under Members. CAHI is administered by a volunteer board of directors elected annually by the membership. We are a registered, non-profit organization, solely funded by annual membership fees.

CAHI is a member of Health for Animals (formerly the International Federation for Animal Health) and an observer on the VICH, the International Cooperation on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Veterinary Products. CAHI is located in Guelph, Ontario.
