THE WESTERN PET EXPO COULD LIGHTEN YOUR WORKLOAD

Forbes Magazine published an article a few months ago about why attending trade shows are worth it and how small and large businesses have one thing in common and that is they need trade shows.  Now you don’t have to take my word for it, but I would encourage you to take a peek at the Forbes article and just to whet your appetite, here are a few summary points. 


Just think how accomplishing all these in one day would help lighten your heavy workload and maybe even make you feel a bit happier...

Johnny the Psychic Budgie







PIJAC Canada has been working with CO_ESP (Cooperative for the survival of parroquites) and we have invited them to share one of their stories with us.



Johnny the Psychic Budgie
By Claire Versailles

The following events occurred at the end of February 2008 and had a significant impact on the life of one of my You Tube correspondents.

Photo: Steve Donoghue
She and her companion shared their lives with a most handsome budgerigar named Johnny. Beautifully clad in blue, this young male was a gifted speaker and unmistakably the best ping-pong ball imitator I have heard to date (see on You Tube). The trio lived in the UK, in the East Midlands region of Leicestershire (north of London).

Sometime during the weekend of February 23-24, the couple began to observe considerable changes in budgie Johnny’s behaviour: usually very tame and friendly, he was gradually becoming grouchy and distant, refusing to step up, biting everything in sight (including his human companions), constantly perching on the highest branch of the room (his LEAST favourite), looking blankly into nothingness, and invariably screeching his head off!

The following day brought no relief for the dismayed couple as the situation had even worsened. What in heaven’s name could possibly perturb a budgie to this extent? Physically, he appeared perfectly normal and there were no changes in his feeding or his droppings. Nonetheless, all their efforts to rehabilitate Johnny failed miserably and they despaired to ever see him in his normal state again. Sick with worry, they began to wonder if their bird had not just simply “lost it”…

Four long days thus passed amid mounting tension and stress, until:

February 27, 2008, nearing one o’clock in the morning, the awakening is brutal — an earthquake (5.2 on the Richter scale) has just struck in East Midlands and its epicentre is therefore relatively close to their home. It is the strongest quake to hit the UK in the past 25 years and has been felt as far as Northern Ireland, Holland, and elsewhere.

As you may have guessed, within hours after the tremor, Johnny was back to his old self again. And our friends were now reassured that, if ever there was a next time, they would be forewarned well in advance… thanks to Johnny!

Inhabitants of regions at risk should take heed: a little budgie could very well be the ideal companion?

Unfortunately, Johnny the psychic budgie has since passed away but he remains vividly remembered on You Tube.

Claire Versailles is a member of the CO-ESP and of the Association québécoise des amateurs de perroquets (AQAP).

Snakes, Daycare and Animal Welfare

 Welcome to our exciting hub of constant activity.  Most know us for our trade shows but there is loads of other things going on behind the scenes.  At every Board Meeting a Summary is written listing activities and accomplishment to date that year.  The list is really quite nifty because it offers a snapshot of what happens in the industry and how PIJAC Canada helps to shape the Canadian pet industry.  So like the title says, “Snakes, Daycare and Animal Welfare” we have an interesting list to share.


RESOURCES - Call us Mastercraft, we love to build tools!
We are completely excited about what we have recently set in motion.

·         Development of Best Management Practices for pet retail operations – you asked for it, the government asked for it, the humane and veterinary sector asked for it and now it’s here. After three years of work we will be publishing an easy to use reference manual to help pet stores manage & improve operations.

·         Relaunch of our Habitattitude (invasive species) website – this great little Canadian gem launched in 2005 to help businesses and consumers identify invasive species and how to safely dispose of them has just been updated.  www.habitattitude.ca

·         Re-launch of the Certified Companion Animal Specialist Program – user friendly, affordable, pet care training for Canadian pet professionals

ADVOCACY - The Heavy Lifting
We call this the heavy lifting portion of our jobs because next to the shows it is the biggest part of what we do.  We engage colleagues, legislators and even the opposition from around the world and around the country in conversation about industry and animal well being.  Here’s how we’ve been representing the industry

Were you aware these issues happened in 2014?
NATIONAL
·         Proposed changes to the government’s pet food import policy
·         Funding opportunities for Canadian exporting companies
·         Possible salmonella contamination from pet reptiles and feeder rodents

PIJAC Canada worked with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to ensure the interests of impacted pet businesses were represented and issues resolved all the while keeping them informed of critical changes that would significantly affect their businesses.

For all you reptile lovers, we are also presently working with the Public Health Agency of Canada at proper messaging to address the issue of salmonellosis associated with pet reptiles and feeder rodents with a focus on awareness and safe handling.

Snakes, Daycare and Animal Welfare
PROVINCIAL
·         Quebec – The regulation amending the safety and welfare of dogs and cats regulation came into effect in late 2013 and PIJAC Canada maintains its involvement with the provincial animal welfare group and sits on the provisional Board of the newly created Animal Welfare Foundation (Fondation BEA).

·         Ontario -   We have been working with the Ontario Ministry of Community Affairs and Correctional Services as part of their team working Ontario’s exotic animal regulation review exercise.

·         We are part of a task force to help establish guidelines for pets in day nurseries. PIJAC Canada will working with a variety of stakeholders under the direction of the Ministry of Ontario Health and Long Term Care.

·         Atlantic Canada – Government officials from all four Atlantic Provinces have called for a review of their exotic animal regulations.  PIJAC Canada met with the New Brunswick Exotic Animal Review Task Force in late November to answer their questions and offer our assistance on this very important issue.
Grassroots Debate
MUNICIPAL
PIJAC Canada has been involved in a number of municipal exercises, mostly dealing with a review of the responsible pet ownership bylaws. These can be some of the most contentious engagements we encounter due to the passion from all sides.  Our approach is simple: support, educate and collaborate.  Working at the grass root level is essential in engaging the community and making decision makers aware of all the facts on this very important issue.
Here are some of the municipalities we worked with in 2014:
Welland                              Oshawa               Ottawa                Kitchener-Waterloo           Rigaud                Quebec City        Gatineau                           Calgary               Richmond Hill                   Montreal                                               


Flexing Canada’s muscle on the world stage
INTERNATIONAL

·         Interzoo – Germany While hosting the Canadian Trade Pavilion at the world’s largest industry show PIJAC Canada met with other international pet industry associations (IPAC) to take the lead on the development of a global resource sharing system.

·         Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) – Montreal  We participated in a working group reporting to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to showcase what the pet industry is doing internationally to address the issue of alien invasive species. (join effort with PIJAC USA and the Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association UK)

·         Top 2 Top – USA PIJAC Canada attended the 3rd annual Top 2 Top Conference (hosted by PIJAC USA) in April to compare notes on issues we share with our American neighbors and participate in training to stay on top of the latest industry intel. 


INFORMATION - Doing our homework
PIJAC Canada has been co-chairing a cross sector working group to investigate ways we can work together at promoting the incredible experience linked to pet ownership. With numerous studies about positive physical, mental and social impact pets have there is a wealth of support for the inclusion of animals in health programs. PIJAC Canada is leading the charge at identifying what constitutes a positive pet experience and equally what are the barriers to this experience by offering the results of our national survey free of charge.  A well matched pet and person make the world a better place and it’s our focus to help ensure positive and sustainable pet experiences.

Last but certainly not least we have jumped into our new strategic plan for the association building on what you’ve seen above, with the addition of some upcoming technological and traditional resources all aimed to helping your business succeed and improving the lives of pets.  Give us a call any time!

Serpents, garderie et bien-être animal

Bienvenue à notre carrefour d’incessante activité. La plupart des gens nous connaissent grâce à nos salons commerciaux, mais il s’en passe aussi beaucoup en coulisses. À chaque réunion du conseil d’administration, un sommaire est rédigé où sont énumérés les activités et accomplissements pour l’année en cours. La liste est vraiment bonne puisqu’elle offre un aperçu de ce qui se passe dans l’industrie et de la contribution de PIJAC Canada à façonner l’industrie canadienne des animaux de compagnie. Alors comme le titre l’annonce, « Serpents, garderie et bien-être animal », nous avons une liste intéressante à partager.

GOUVERNANCE – Appelez-nous Mastercraft, nous adorons fabriquer des outils!
Nous sommes complètement emballés par les projets que nous venons de démarrer.

Développement des meilleures pratiques de gestion pour les opérations de vente au détail dans le domaine des animaux de compagnie – vous l’avez demandé, le gouvernement l’a demandé, les secteurs anti-cruauté animale et vétérinaire l’ont demandé, il est maintenant arrivé. Après trois ans de travail, nous publierons un manuel de référence facile à utiliser pour aider les boutiques d’animaux de compagnie à gérer et à améliorer leurs opérations.
  •      Nouveau lancement de notre site web Habitattitude (espèces envahissantes) – cet excellent petit joyau canadien lancé en 2005 pour aider les entreprises et les consommateurs à identifier les espèces envahissantes et à en disposer de façon sûre vient d’être mis à jour.  www.habitattitude.ca
  •     Nouveau lancement du programme Spécialiste en animaux de compagnie certifié – formation conviviale et abordable en soins animaliers pour les professionnels canadiens du domaine.



LA DÉFENSE D’UNE CAUSE – La vraie charge de travail
Nous appelons cette portion « vraie charge de travail » puisqu’avec les salons commerciaux, elle représente la plus grosse partie de notre travail. Nous impliquons les collègues, législateurs et même l’opposition provenant de partout dans le monde et au pays dans une discussion à propos de l’industrie et du bien-être animal. Voici comment nous avons représenté l’industrie :

Saviez-vous que ces enjeux ont été au cœur de l’actualité en 2014?
NATIONAL
  • Modifications proposées à la politique gouvernementale sur l’importation de nourriture pour animaux de compagnie
  •  Opportunités de financement pour les compagnies d’exportation canadiennes
  • Contamination possible à la salmonelle provenant des reptiles de compagnies et des rongeurs servant de source d’alimentation.
PIJAC Canada a travaillé avec l’Agence canadienne d’inspection des aliments (ACIA), Agriculture et Agroalimentaire Canada (AAC) et l’Agence de la santé publique du Canada (ASPC) afin de s’assurer que les intérêts des entreprises du domaine des animaux de compagnie étaient représentés et que les problèmes soient résolus tout en les gardant informées des changements critiques qui affecteraient leurs affaires de façon significative.

Pour vous tous, amoureux des reptiles, nous travaillons actuellement avec l’Agence de la santé publique du Canada afin de transmettre de la meilleure façon l’information sur les risques de salmonelle associés aux reptiles de compagnie ainsi qu’aux rongeurs dont ils s’alimentent. L’emphase est mise sur la conscientisation et une manipulation sécuritaire.




Serpents, garderie et bien-être animal
PROVINCIAL
  • Québec – L’amendement apporté à la réglementation sur le bien-être des chiens et des chats a pris effet à la fin de 2013 et PIJAC Canada maintient son implication avec le groupe provincial pour le bien-être animal et siège sur le conseil provisoire de la nouvellement créée Fondation pour le Bien-Être Animal (Fondation BEA).
  •  
  • Ontario – Nous avons travaillé en équipe avec le Ministère de la sécurité communautaire et des services correctionnels de l’Ontario à l’exercice de révision de la réglementation de l’Ontario sur les animaux exotiques.
  •        
  •  Nous faisons partie du groupe de travail créé pour aider à établir les lignes directrices concernant les animaux de compagnies dans les services de garderie. PIJAC Canada travaillera avec une variété de parties concernées sous la direction du Ministère de la santé et des soins de longue durée.

  • ·         Provinces de l’Atlantique – Les représentants gouvernementaux des quatre provinces de l’Atlantique ont demandé la révision de leurs réglementations sur les animaux exotiques. PIJAC Canada a rencontré le groupe de travail sur les animaux exotiques à la fin novembre pour répondre à leurs questions et offrir notre assistance pour cet enjeu crucial.
Débat social - MUNICIPAL
PIJAC Canada s’implique dans une variété d’exercices municipaux axés principalement sur la révision des règlements administratifs sur la possession responsable des animaux de compagnie. Ceux-ci peuvent être parmi les mobilisations les plus litigieuses auxquelles nous devons faire face en raison de la passion qui anime toutes les parties. Notre approche est simple : soutenir, éduquer et collaborer.  Travailler à l’échelle sociale est essentiel afin d’impliquer la communauté et informer les décideurs de tous les faits concernant cet enjeu très important.
Voici les villes avec lesquelles nous avons travaillé en 2014 :
Welland                              Oshawa               Ottawa                Kitchener-Waterloo
Rigaud                                 Québec              Gatineau             Calgary               
Richmond Hill                   Montréal, (Plateau Mont-Royal)

  •  
  • ·     Convention sur la diversité biologique (CDB) – Montréal  Nous avons participé à un groupe de travail se rapportant à la Convention sur la diversité biologique (CDB) pour mettre en valeur ce que l’industrie des animaux de compagnie fait sur la scène internationale afin de réagir au problème des espèces exotiques envahissantes (effort conjoint avec PIJAC USA et l’Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association UK)
  •  
  • ·         Top 2 Top – États-Unis PIJAC Canada a assisté à la 3e conférence annuelle Top 2 Top (organisée par PIJAC USA) en avril pour comparer les enjeux majeurs sur les problèmes que nous partageons avec nos voisins américains et pour participer à une formation afin de rester à la fine pointe des renseignements les plus récents concernant l’industrie.

INFORMATION – Faire la promotion d’une expérience positive avec les animaux de compagnie en faisant nos devoirs
PIJAC Canada a partagé la présidence d’un groupe de travail multisecteurs dont l’objectif est  d’enquêter sur les façons possibles de travailler conjointement à la promotion d’une excellente expérience reliée à la propriété des animaux de compagnie. Avec les nombreuses études démontrant l’impact positif sur les plans physique, mental et social, il existe un important support à l’inclusion des animaux dans les programmes de santé. PIJAC Canada sonne la charge dans l’identification des éléments qui constituent une expérience positive avec les animaux de compagnie et également sur l’identification des barrières empêchant une telle expérience en offrant gratuitement les résultats de notre sondage national. Une personne bien jumelée à un animal de compagnie qui lui convient rend le monde meilleur et c’est notre rôle d’aider à assurer que ces expériences avec les animaux de compagnie soient positives et durables.



Dernier point mais non le moindre, nous avons entamé notre nouveau plan stratégique pour l’association, en nous basant sur les points couverts ci-dessus. En plus de l’addition prochaine de ressources technologiques et traditionnelles visant à aider votre entreprise à connaître du succès et à améliorer la vie des animaux de compagnie. N’hésitez pas à nous appeler en tout temps!
