Call for Expert Reviewers for the CCAC’s Euthanasia Guidelines

The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) is seeking volunteer experts to review the CCAC guidelines on: euthanasia of animals used in science (2010). The reviewers will provide expert peer advice on the content of the guidelines document and on current interpretation of scientific evidence that has emerged since its publication. This feedback will help determine whether a full revision of the document is necessary.

In keeping with the CCAC’s transparent and inclusive nomination process, we would like to open this opportunity to all stakeholders to recommend public representatives and qualified experts in humane killing (scientists, veterinarians, animal facility managers, animal care technicians, and animal welfare scientists) who may be suitable candidates. The final list of reviewers will be selected to ensure that the collective expertise of the group covers the scope of the document.

Please submit a nomination package for any suitable candidates (including contact information, a short biography, and statement of interest) to the CCAC Secretariat at by September 10, 2021. Self-nominations are also accepted.
