Inscription. English:
Canadian government veterinarians based on Grosse Île played a major role in protecting animal health in Canada for more than forty years.

Their research during the Second World War led, 1946, to the development of a vaccine against rinderpest. The exotic animal disease research laboratory and training centre, opened following the 1952 foot-and-mouth epidemic, remained in use until 1988.

Between 1965 and 1985, when large numbers of animals were imported from continental Europe, the veterinarians set up an animal quarantine station in the island to protect the health of the country’s livestock herds.
