Canadian Flag CFIA Expands Areas Regulated for the Emerald Ash Borer
Date posted: 04/19/2012
Contact: Not available
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has expanded the Ministerial Order for the emerald ash borer (EAB) to include new areas of Ontario and Québec. As a result of new detections of the beetle in 2011, the Ministerial Order expands one existing regulated area and creates two new areas, in addition to the areas already regulated.

The new regulated areas include:

  • Manitoulin District in Ontario, and
  • Montréal, Baie-d’Urfé, Beaconsfield, Côte-Saint-Luc, Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, Dorval, Hampstead, Kirkland, L’Île-Dorval, Montréal East, Montréal West, Mont-Royal, Pointe-Claire, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Senneville, and Westmount in Québec.

The existing regulated area - which had included the city of Ottawa, the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville in Ontario, and part of the city of Gatineau in Québec, now also includes:

  • the United Counties of Prescott and Russell in Ontario, and
  • the remaining parts of the city of Gatineau in Québec.

All other areas already regulated for the EAB remain unchanged under the Ministerial Order.

Under the Emerald Ash Borer Infested Places Order, movement of all ash tree materials and all firewood will be regulated in the designated areas of Ontario and Québec. Moving these materials from a designated regulated area without prior permission from the CFIA could result in fines and/or prosecution.

The CFIA continues to work with its partners and stakeholders towards slowing the spread of the EAB.

A list of all regulated areas for the beetle, including maps, can be found at www.inspection.gc.ca/pests. Additional information can also be obtained by calling CFIA Media Relations at 613-773-6600.
