In an announcement relating to additional food safety measures, in November 2013, Canada's Minister of Health announced the expansion of FoodNet Canada7.  FoodNet Canada is made up of three surveillance sites located across the country. In addition to the new site in Alberta, there is a site in the Region of Waterloo, Ontario and the Fraser Region in British Columbia. The sites will each collect detailed information about food-borne illness and trace those illnesses back to their sources, such as food, water, and animals.  The information collected is expected to identify illness sources and help track illnesses and causes of those illnesses over time to assist federal and provincial governments, industry, and other food safety partners to take preventative measures.
