On September 30th, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed the presence of emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, in the Municipality of Notre-Dame-du-Laus (MRC d’Antoine-Labelle), Québec, Canada.

Movement restrictions, which prohibit the movement of all ash material such as logs, branches, and wood chips, as well as all species of firewood from the affected site, have been put in place. Property owners in the affected area will be notified of these restrictions. Further regulatory measures will be considered once all survey work has been completed.

The CFIA continues to work with federal, provincial, and municipal governments towards slowing the spread of EAB in Canada.

Under IPPC Standards (e.g. ISPM No. 8), EAB is considered present only in some areas of Ontario and Québec and is subject to official control in Canada.

Additional Information is available on the CFIA website, or by calling 1-866-463-6017.
