Under this new Framework, Minister Ambrose along with the Honourable Dave Rodney, Assistant Minister of Wellness for Alberta, announced the expansion of FoodNet Canada to include a new surveillance site in Calgary and Central Alberta. "Alberta is very pleased to host this new site in Canada that will improve our food safety surveillance systems and help prevent illnesses, improving the overall wellness of Canadians," said Minister Rodney. FoodNet Canada is made up of three surveillance sites located across the country. In addition to the new site in Alberta, there is one in the Region of Waterloo, Ontario and the Fraser Region in British Columbia. They each collect detailed information about food-borne illness, commonly known as food-poisoning, in Canadians and trace those illnesses back to their sources, such as food, water and animals.
