Jan. 27: CFIA Expands Regulated Areas to Control Spread of Emerald Ash Borer


To slow the spread of emerald ash borer into new parts of Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency expanded areas regulated to control this pest to include Thunder Bay, ON as well as Joliette and D’Autray, QC. It’s prohibited to move firewood of all species, as well as ash trees, ash nursery stock or ash wood (including wood chips, wood packaging or dunnage), out of this area without written permission from the CFIA.
