Animals Used in Science
Animal Use Data
As part of its accountability to the Canadian public and commitment to transparency, the CCAC publishes annual animal use data from CCAC-certified institutions. These annual animal use data reports are readily accessible to all Canadians.
The annual collection and synthesis of this data serves two critical roles in that the data provide greater insight into animal-based science and help the CCAC track national trends and allocate resources to areas where there is the potential for negative welfare impacts.
To make this process as efficient as possible, the CCAC provides helpful resources, including reporting instructions and forms. The CCAC also acknowledges all those responsible for compiling and submitting their institutional data every year.
