From a broader perspective, animal health is firmly linked to human and environmental health and encourages us to work together to achieve the best health for people, animals, and our environment.
CAHI works with governments, veterinarians, farmers, pet owners and the general public. We actively participate on national and provincial working groups, coalitions and committees with the goal to support animal health and animal welfare.
CAHI advocates for a predictable, science and risk-based regulatory approach for animal health products in the Canadian marketplace to the benefit of all Canadians. It supports international regulatory harmonization, trade and innovation.
CAHI is a member of HealthforAnimals (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.
