Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance (CIPARS)

The Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance (CIPARS) is a national integrated surveillance program which is coordinated by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Centre for Food-borne, Environmental and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases and National Microbiology Laboratory in collaboration with federal, provincial, and private industry partners. CIPARS collects, analyses, and communicates trends in antimicrobial use and in antimicrobial resistance for select bacteria from humans, animals, and retail meat across Canada. The bacteria under surveillance are known as enteric bacteria (can be found in the intestines of people and animals) and can be transmitted between animals and people. Information from CIPARS supports measures to contain the emergence and spread of resistant bacteria among animals, food, and people, with the aim of prolonging the effectiveness of antimicrobials. More details about CIPARS here.
