The Ministry of Environment offers free voluntary CWD testing. The results will be available in roughly six to eight weeks from drop-off.
Please note: Samples may be deemed untestable for a number of reasons. This includes missing, decomposed, damaged samples or animals that were shot in the head. Samples from animals less than one year of age (fawns and calves) will not be tested.
The ministry is not responsible for the quality of samples received at the laboratory or extracted by hunters. Please ensure that your head is frozen promptly after harvest to prevent decomposition.
If you do not see your result, your sample is still being processed. Please check back in a few weeks.
If you have lost your tracking number of have a question regarding your testing result, please contact our CWD technician at 306-250-0794.
