Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance (CIPARS): Data visualization
On this page
CIPARS's surveillance activities generate a vast amount of rich data about antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in select foodborne bacteria, and antimicrobial use (AMU) including antimicrobial sales and farm-level AMU. The interactive data visualizations below were created to provide an easy-to-use set of interactive tools to help users engage with and navigate these rich data, while providing options to customize and tailor the visualizations to their own needs. These interactive data visualizations are just the beginning; CIPARS will continue to develop and add additional interactive tools and visualizations.
CIPARS veterinary antimicrobial sales reporting (VASR)
The veterinary antimicrobial sales reporting (VASR) system is an online reporting system that was launched in January 2018 and is a joint surveillance activity between the Public Health Agency of Canada and Health Canada's Veterinary Drugs Directorate. Manufacturers, importers and compounders of antimicrobial products in Canada are required to report annually on the quantity of medically important antimicrobials sold that were intended for use in animals.
The interactive data visualizations provide an overview of the quantity of medically important antimicrobials sold for use in animals since 2018, including:
- sales by province/region
- antimicrobial class
- animal species
- route of administration
CIPARS antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
CIPARS AMR interactive data visualizations provide an overview of AMR data by:
- bacterial genus (for example, Salmonella) and subtype (for example, serovar)
- surveillance component (for example, farm, abattoir, retail)
- antimicrobial drug or grouping (for example, multi-class resistance)
