The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) has released their 2016/2017 Annual Report. Below is a message from the CCAC Chair:
Dear Member Organizations,
I am pleased to share with you the CCAC Annual Report 2016-2017, “Advancing Animal Ethics and Care Through Continuous Improvement and Collaboration”. This is our second annual report since we created the CCAC Strategic Plan 2015-2020. It reports on the activities and developments pertaining to each of our five strategic goals and how we have built on the work from last year. You will also find a number of plans for the future.
The annual report also illustrates the CCAC’s ongoing appreciation for our dedicated community of volunteer experts, whose work enables the CCAC to bring together the knowledge and experience necessary to advance animal ethics and care in Canadian science. Without your involvement, the CCAC would not be able to bring its mandate to life.
On behalf of the CCAC Board of Directors, I sincerely thank you and your organization for continuing to support the CCAC’s work.
Dr. Eileen Denovan-Wright
Chair, CCAC Board of Directors
