The Public Health Agency of Canada’s Centre for Biosecurity is mandated to prevent, detect and respond to public health risks posed by the use of human pathogens and toxins in Canada. The Centre for Biosecurity oversees activities conducted under the Human Pathogens and Toxins Act (HPTA) and the Human Pathogens and Toxins Regulations (HPTR). In December 2015, the Centre for Biosecurity established a national surveillance system, the Laboratory Incident Notification Canada (LINC), for the mandatory reporting of laboratory incidents involving human pathogens and toxins. 

The most recent data has just been published by the Canadian authorities and may be downloaded here.
