Community for Emerging and Zoonotic Diseases

Surveillance of changing risks to protect Canadians

The Community for Emerging and Zoonotic Diseases (CEZD) is a virtual multidisciplinary network that includes partners from provincial, federal and municipal governments, industry, and academia in areas of public, animal and environmental health.

CEZD was developed to support Canada’s animal early warning, preparedness and response capabilities needs regarding emerging and zoonotic diseases. Through the gathering of information, analysis and the generation and distribution of timely intelligence reports, Canada is now better able to anticipate, manage, and mitigate pending disease threats on its society, economy, environment, and animal resources.
