Poulettes Avian influenza H5N1
Highly pathogenic in wild and domestic birds

The highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 has been detected in Quebec and Canada in wild and farmed birds. Although the risk of transmission from birds to humans is low, it poses a significant threat to the health of farmed poultry. The Ministère de l'Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l'Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ) is asking for your vigilance and cooperation in order to optimize the surveillance and prevention measures for this flu. As a citizen:
  • Report dead or moribund wild birds to the ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) at 1-877-346-6763
  • Do not handle the bird until instructed.

Urban hens, small livestock and commercial farms
As an owner, you must rigorously enforce prevention and biosecurity measures in accordance with the requirements of the Règlement sur les conditions de salubrité des lieux de garde d’oiseaux captifs :
  • Domestic birds must be kept in a fenced building or space to prevent free roaming;
  • Bird feeders and water troughs must be protected, so that no migrating bird can access or stain them;
  • Surface water should not be used to water birds or to clean equipment and buildings;
  • It is forbidden to keep domestic birds and migrating birds at the same street address.

Le MAPAQ recommande également au propriétaire :
  • Avoid direct or indirect contact between farmed and wild birds by confining birds in a closed building where possible, or in a roofed enclosure (e.g., net);
  • Avoid attracting wild birds with the presence of food, water or water on the ground near the pen;
  • Clean and disinfect any vehicle or equipment before each entry or exit of the premises;
  • Restrict access to the farm to authorized persons only and ensure that those persons comply with existing biosecurity measures (keep a visitor log if possible);
  • Avoid contact between backyard and commercial farms (e.g., staff sharing).

In case of unusual mortalities or signs of the disease, consult a veterinarian. If you are unable to find a veterinarian, call 450-768-6763 to contact the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) Sick Bird Reporting Line or 1 844 ANIMALS to contact the MAPAQ Reporting Central.

Buying and selling chicks
The MAPAQ recommends to buy chicks from a commercial hatchery under CFIA health supervision; birds from these hatcheries are free of several diseases of importance to the poultry sector and have a known health status. It is also necessary to avoid buying or exchanging birds between small farms.

Bird gatherings
Currently, the MAPAQ does not recommend participating in bird gatherings from different breedings (fairs, exhibitions, competitions). This position will be revised after the migratory period, that is to say in late spring.

Seasonal flu vaccination clinic

Seasonal flu vaccination clinic

By appointment for vulnerable persons

The flu can have serious consequences for those suffering from diabetes, weakened immune systems, heart, kidney or lung disease.

You can now make an appointment:

1. On, select “Seasonal Flu Vaccine” and enter your postal code

2. By telephone: 1-877-817-5279

►►►The vaccine is free for vulnerable persons and their family members:

  • Pregnant women in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of their pregnancy;
  • Persons who are 6 months old or more who have a chronic disease (including pregnant women, no matter what the stage of their pregnancy);
  • Persons aged 75 years and over.
  • The close relatives and friends of the persons at risk mentioned, or of children under the age of 6 months, and health workers can also receive the vaccine free of charge.

Recent studies have shown that children between the ages of 6 and 23 months, as well as seniors between 60 and 74 years who are in good health have a risk of hospitalization and death associated with the flu comparable to that of the general population in good health. The flu vaccination is therefore no longer recommended for these individuals. However, for the 2021 vaccination campaign, children between the ages of 6 and 23 months and seniors between 60 and 74 years who wish to be vaccinated can receive the vaccination for free.

Persons not targeted by this free vaccination campaign who wish to be vaccinated should ask for information from pharmacies or medical clinics; some of these organizations offer the vaccine for a fee.

At the time of your appointment, if a person 13 years of age or older accompanies you, that person must present his or her vaccination proof to enter the building.

Lyme disease

Results of the 2017 surveillance activities in Saint-Lazare

Saint-Lazare (Quebec), Tuesday, May 8, 2018 –  During the 2017 summer season, a team composed of students from Université de Montréal’s faculty of veterinary medicine collected ticks from Parc nature Les-Forestiers-de Saint-Lazare as part of the Institut national de santé publique’s Lyme disease surveillance activities. 

Ticks were collected using a flanel (a piece of white fabric tied to a stick) and the collected ticks were sent to the Laboratoire de santé publique du Québec (LSPQ of the INSPQ) for identification. Following this, ticks belonging to the Ixodes scapularis species (carriers of Lyme disease) were sent to the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg for detection, most notably of the Borrelia burgdorferi pathogen.

The Town of Saint-Lazare wishes to inform its residents that no ticks of the Ixodes scapularis species (carriers of Lyme disease) were collected from our park. Regardless, the Town continues to recommend that citizens adhere to the following public health guidelines:

Information on the presence of manganese in Saint-Lazare's treated water

Public health – Water quality

SAINT-LAZARE (Québec), Wednesday October 9, 2019  -  In the light of concerns expressed by Saint-Lazare residents following the broadcast of Radio-Canada’s television program Enquête correlating high levels of manganese in the blood with the neurological development of children, the City wishes to inform the public that the water treated and distributed by its aqueduct networks does not have high manganese levels.

The analyses carried out several times a week confirm that the water treated and distributed by Saint-Lazare’s 3 aqueduct networks has a manganese level of less than 0.03 mg/L at all timeswhich is 4 times lower than the Health Canada guideline of 0.12 mg/L.

Let’s note it is important to distinguish between raw water directly drawn from a well, such as a private well that usually does not undergo any treatment, and water treated by a treatment plant. Raw water drawn from municipal wells is sent to one of the 3 treatment plants (Sainte-Angélique, Saddlebrook or Saint-Louis) where it is treated and analyzed several times a week to ensure it meets the various standards of the Ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte aux Changement climatiques as well as Health Canada recommendations.

The maximum level of manganese deemed acceptable by Health Canada for drinking water distributed by an aqueduct network is 0.12 mg/l; this is a guideline from Health Canada, not a standard. For more information, visit the National Public Health Institute

Private wells in Sainte-Lazare

According to the Town’s registry (2003-2019), 215 private wells (commonly known as “artesian wells“) provide water to Saint-Lazare homes. The water intended for human consumption must be of good quality and must meet the standards set in the Regulation respecting the quality of drinking water. The owner of an individual well or small private network (servicing less than 21 people) is responsible to ensure the water is of good quality and safe for human consumption.

The owner’s responsibilities are listed in the guide provided by the ministère de l’environnement et Lutte contre les changements climatiques:

Cannabis Act

Cannabis in Saint-Lazare: where is it prohibited?

SAINT-LAZARE (Quebec), Tuesday, October 9, 2018 – The legalization of cannabis, which comes into force on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, raises questions and concerns. In an effort to clarify certain aspects of the Act, the Town of Saint-Lazare wishes to specify the locations where cannabis use is prohibited.

This provincial law provides a framework for the possession and use of cannabis in public places notably by prohibiting the smoking of cannabis everywhere that smoking tobacco or vaping is already prohibited. Smoking cannabis will therefore be prohibited in any public place, most notably, but not limited to:  

  • municipal parks, including nature parks, La Pinière, school parks, skate parks; bike paths, recreational trails, athletic tracks; outdoor pools, playgrounds for children, including water games;  sports fields including tennis, pickleball and basketball courts as well as soccer, football and softball fields; day camp fields, skating rinks and ice rings, for example;  
  • during activities, holidays, events and municipal gatherings; and, in general,
  • less than 9 metres from public buildings;
  • at all times on the lots of:
    • child care centres and daycares;
    • educational institutions:
      • preschools;
      • elementary schools;
      • secondary schools, including adult education centres and vocational training centres.
  • on the terraces of restaurants and bars;
  • common areas of residential buildings with 2 to 3 units.

The Town has been informed that no cannabis point of sale is expected in Saint-Lazare at this time. As such, the town will not be affected from a commercial perspective for the time being.

In a context other than personal usage, regulations pertaining to the cultivation and transformation of cannabis are those stipulated in the agricultural and industrial zoning by-law. Sanctions for violations are those currently provided for.

West Nile Virus

The Québec government's intervention plan

Saint-Lazare does not figure amongst regions that will be treated with Btk against West Nile virus-bearing mosquitoes.

See the Quebec government's 2013 intervention plan (in French)


Les maringouins sont infectés en plus grand nombre par le virus du Nil occidental aux mois d'août et septembre même s'il y a moins de maringouins à cette période de l'année. Par conséquent, le risque de transmission à l'humain est plus élevé, et ce, jusqu'à la fin de la saison estivale. « Comme il n'existe aucun vaccin ou traitement spécifique contre le virus du Nil occidental, la prévention doit demeurer la pierre angulaire de notre intervention de santé publique, de souligner Dre Jocelyne Sauvé, directrice de santé publique de la Montérégie. Nous invitons donc les Montérégiens à prendre les mesures de prévention nécessaires en éliminant les sites potentiels de reproduction de maringouins, ces derniers étant le principal vecteur de la maladie. »

Le maringouin pond ses œufs dans une eau stagnante. Un bassin ou un étang à proximité de la maison représente un site de reproduction par excellence. Une femelle peut y pondre de 200 à 300 œufs à plusieurs reprises au cours de l'été et ceux-ci mettent environ quatre jours à devenir des adultes prêts à s'envoler. Il suffit d'un peu d'eau pour que les maringouins se développent, d'où l'importance d'éliminer toute source d'eau stagnante :

·  Enlever régulièrement l'eau qui s'accumule sur les articles extérieurs : jouets d'enfants, soucoupes sous les pots à fleurs, bacs de recyclage, poubelles, bâches protectrices, etc.
·  Éliminer les objets inutiles qui traînent sur la propriété, notamment les vieux pneus, car l'eau s'y accumule.
·  Changer l'eau de la pataugeoire, de l'abreuvoir d'oiseaux et de l'abreuvoir de bétail deux fois par semaine.
·  Couvrir d'une moustiquaire les citernes pluviales – réservoirs dans lesquels on recueille et conserve les eaux de pluie.
·  Nettoyer régulièrement les gouttières pour éviter que l'eau s'y accumule et s'assurer du bon écoulement de l'eau.
·  Si le bassin décoratif n'est pas équipé d'une pompe, introduire des poissons dans celui-ci puisqu'ils mangent les larves de maringouins.
