The CCAC is dedicated to fostering a greater awareness and understanding of animal-based science in Canada. In pursuit of this goal, we work to provide information to help Canadians learn more about animal ethics and care in Canadian science.

As part of our accountability to the Canadian public and our commitment to transparency, the CCAC also publishes annual animal data from CCAC-certified institutions.

Whether you are a researcher, an animal health professional, an animal care committee member, or simply an interested individual, the CCAC strives to present all stakeholders with a clear and detailed look at animal-based science in Canada.
