Winners of the 2021 Harry C. Rowsell Award for Outstanding Service to the CCAC

The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) is pleased to announce that Dr. Andy Fletch (retired, McMaster University) and Dr. Chris Harvey-Clark (veterinarian, Dalhousie University) are this year's winners of the Harry C. Rowsell Award for Outstanding Service to the CCAC.

A record number of nominations were submitted this year and the CCAC would like to thank all of the nominees for their exceptional contributions, which have left an indelible mark on the CCAC and its community. "All of the nominees are very dedicated individuals who have contributed greatly to the ethical care and use of animals in science, and to the CCAC itself,” said Mr. Pierre Verreault, CCAC Executive Director. “The CCAC and the Canadian system of ethical animal care and use rely on people with different expertise, and that was well reflected in the range of nominations we received, which included scientists, veterinarians, senior administrators, policy makers, and animal care technicians. It is thanks to all of these people that the CCAC is able to work so effectively and collaboratively with our community."
