Animals Used in Science
The CCAC is dedicated to fostering a greater awareness and understanding of animal-based science in Canada. As part of its accountability to the Canadian public and our commitment to transparency, the CCAC publishes annual animal use data from CCAC-certified institutions.
The document, CCAC Facts & Figures, provides basic information on the CCAC, the numbers of animals used in Canadian science, as well as animal care and use in research, testing, and teaching in Canada. It is updated annually to keep the Canadian public informed about current trends and facts on animal care and use in science.
Whether you are a researcher, an animal health professional, an animal care committee member, or simply an interested individual, the CCAC strives to present all stakeholders with a clear and detailed look at the ethical care and use of animals in Canadian science.
