The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is recognizing International Day of Plant Health, observed annually on May 12 by reminding Canadians of the importance of protecting our forests, gardens, farms, and environment from invasive pests and plants. Learn about the invasive species that are in your area and what they look like and report any suspicious plant pests to the  CFIA online  or by contacting your local office.  Our members take great care in ensuring vessels arriving from international ports comply with CFIA measures to protect Canada’s forests and plant health.  Spongy moth spraying activity on Vancouver Island are of the European species that have hitch-hiked from eastern Canada.
