The goals for pre-elimination and elimination are set in Canada’s international commitments and programs should be monitoring their own year-on-year progress toward meeting them. The pre-elimination target for low-incidence settings is an active case rate of 10/1,000,000 population by 2035, while the elimination target is 1/1,000,000 population by 2050 at the national level. Progress toward elimination depends on achieving a rate of decline that aligns with those targets, but will be influenced by the local epidemiology of TB in the populations served by the program. As a result, the rate of decline will vary by the reporting program.
