Cover page of the Guidelines on Animalwelfare assement

The CCAC guidelines: Animal welfare assessment, along with its implementation document, is now available.

This document is part of a series of general guidelines documents that streamline information for investigators, animal care committees, facility managers, veterinarians, technicians, and animal care personnel to help facilitate improvements in both the care given to animals, and the manner in which experimental procedures are carried out. It is based on expert peer advice and current interpretation of scientific evidence and has received extensive peer review.

The CCAC would like to thank all of the volunteer experts who participated in the creation of this guidelines document. Your insights and expertise are deeply valued, and we truly appreciate the important role you play in the development of our standards for the ethical care and use of animals in Canadian science.
