Hi Eric:
            Have you been in touch with Health Canada or CFIA?  They'll need
to give you an import licence and should be able to help with pathogenicity
questions. However, if this request is a follow-up to contact with them, and
they've asked you for this info, then why not just declare them as risk group
2 agents (no E. coli is classified higher than this in North America) and file
the appropriate forms?

Regards,


Wayne.
