    Description

    This Request for Information (“RFI”) is issued by Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has been engaged in responding to the Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) reportable disease in the cervid population in Canada since 1996 with that first reported case in farmed cervids being located in Saskatchewan in that year.

    During the last 27 years the size of the industry has fluctuated and the publicly available information as it relates to financial transactions/movement of livestock within the cervid industry is becoming extremely scarce and difficult to access. An important part of the CFIA disease response is to determine fair market value to provide fair compensation for all cervids that are ordered destroyed as a result of that response.

    This is has become increasingly difficult especially in the whitetail deer industry where the primary source of revenue is the hunt market.
