Reminder: Submit Your Nomination for the Harry C. Rowsell Award for Outstanding Service to the CCAC

The deadline to submit your nominations for the Harry C. Rowsell Award for Outstanding Service to the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) is fast approaching.

Nominees for this award must have made an outstanding contribution to the goals of the CCAC and have advanced the ethical care and use of animals in Canadian science through dedication, competence, exceptional performance, excellent service, and/or ingenuity. This award is open to anyone working in the field of animal care and use in science, including, but not limited to, animal welfare experts, animal laboratory technicians, teachers, researchers, veterinarians, and animal care committee members.

While a nominee can only win the award once, nomination packages for previous candidates may be resubmitted if they meet all award criteria. Self-nominations are also accepted. We invite all of our stakeholders to nominate deserving individuals for this award.

The winner will be notified on April 2, 2021 and announced on April 22, 2021 through the CCAC’s digital media channels.

Help us highlight some of the country’s best and brightest, working to further the ethical care and use of animals in science. Submit your nomination by Friday, February 26, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
