The Cervid Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) Surveillance Program provides surveillance to detect CWD on domestic game farms in Saskatchewan. The program also provides data to measure the effectiveness of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's CWD eradication program.
Saskatchewan Agriculture administers and regulates the Surveillance Program under The Domestic Game Farm Animal Regulations. All domestic game farm operators that keep cervids in Saskatchewan are required to participate. The program began in January 2001 on a voluntary basis, and was made mandatory on December 31, 2001.
