Cross Border Livestock Health Conference
The Cross Border Livestock Health Conference (CBLHC) is part of the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region (PNWER) annual summit. PNWER includes BC, AB, SK, YK, NWT, as well as WA, OR, ID, MT, and AK. The CBLHC addresses government (federal, state, and provincial) and industry issues and cross border policies with the goal to improve farm animal health and increase cross border livestock trade. CBLHC participants include State Veterinarians and Provincial Chief Veterinarians, CFIA / USDA APHIS, and industry leaders. CAHC members and staff help plan and deliver the annual event (see attached CBLHC, Calgary, 2016), addressing related CAHC projects and cross border issues.
