Canadian health officials have confirmed the first known fatal case of the H5N1 avian influenza strain in North America.
Health Minister Rona Ambrose said the deceased was a resident of Alberta who had recently travelled to Beijing.
Calling the death an "isolated case", Ms Ambrose said the risk to the general population was low.
