FluWatch is Canada's national surveillance system that monitors the spread of influenza and influenza-like illnesses on an ongoing basis.

The FluWatch program consists of a network of labs, hospitals, doctor's offices and provincial and territorial ministries of health. Program objectives are: • DETECT: Identify signals to detect, assess and respond to epidemics and other events of public health concern. • INFORM: Contribute to the evidence base necessary to plan, develop and implement health programs and policies for the control of influenza. • ENABLE: Support national infrastructure for influenza surveillance, including national and international collaborations related to surveillance and pandemic response.
