Contribute to the Review of the CCAC Guidelines on Categories of Welfare Impact

The draft CCAC guidelines: Categories of welfare impact is now available for public review by our community. This document was carefully developed by a subcommittee of volunteer experts and has undergone an initial, limited review by select experts.

The CCAC guidelines: Categories of welfare impact aims to:

  • improve the understanding of welfare impacts on animals involved in proposed scientific activities;
  • encourage consideration of how those impacts might be minimized; and
  • assist in the accurate reporting of the experiences of animals used in science across Canada.

Help advance high standards for the ethical care and use of animals in Canadian science by providing your insight and input on this guidelines document.

We also encourage you to share the draft with others, or collaboratively review the guidelines with your colleagues. Please note that the draft document you receive will likely undergo significant changes prior to final approval and publication.
