The Canadian Association for Laboratory Animal Medicine (CALAM/ACMAL) was founded in 1982 and is a not-for-profit organization composed of laboratory animal veterinarians working in research, teaching, government, and industry in Canada. The association's mission is to advise interested parties in Canada on all matters pertaining to laboratory animal medicine; to further the education of its members; and to promote ethics and professionalism in the field. The association is committed to the provision of appropriate veterinary care for all animals used in research, teaching or testing.

As part of its mission to provide quality continuing education in laboratory animal medicine, CALAM/ACMAL sponsors scientific presentations at the CALAS symposium, organizes workshops on various topics related to laboratory animal science held as either standalone events or in conjunction with the CALAS symposium, and holds an annual luncheon for its members with a sponsored general interest speaker. CALAM/ACMAL also provides an annual scholarship to a veterinary student at each of the five Canadian veterinary colleges to promote interest in the field of laboratory animal science, provides financial support of activities of lab animal medicine clubs at veterinary schools, and offers an annual scholarship to a Canadian veterinary student to attend the national CALAS Symposium.

Why support CALAM/ACMAL?

A CALAM/ACMAL sponsorship constitutes a unique opportunity for your organization to specifically reach key-decision makers in the laboratory animal field across Canada. We are seeking generous sponsors to support us in our mission. You may elect to sponsor general or specific activities and projects that correspond to your corporate objectives.
