OFA strongly recommends that the proposed amendments to O. Reg. 567, Rabies Immunization, be set aside and that consultations with Ontario’s livestock commodity organizations and Ontario’s Chief Veterinarian occur before any such regulatory amendment is made. OFA agrees with the stated objective to “modernize requirements for rabies immunization of animals”. However, inviting public health units who are currently not subject to the requirement to have certain livestock in specific health unit jurisdictions immunized against rabies to be added to Tables 1 and/or 2 of the regulation appears not to be consistent with a risk-based approach. OFA recommends a risk-based approach be taken to determine if the certain livestock in the specific health unit jurisdictions currently listed should remain listed.
