The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has confirmed the presence of the emerald ash borer (EAB) in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, Ontario, at a rest area along Highway 401 eastbound, near Mallorytown. Movement restrictions will be placed on the affected property and the owners will be notified. Further regulatory measures to control this infestation will be considered once surveying throughout eastern Ontario has been completed.

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. For more information, please visit the CFIA website at www.inspection.gc.ca.
