    Save the Date for the CCAC National Workshop 2020!

    We are pleased to invite you to the CCAC National Workshop 2020 on June 5-6, 2020 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto, ON.

    To meet the needs expressed by our stakeholders, we are pleased to announce that we have added an extra day to our program to allow more time for in-depth discussions on topics of value to all animal care committee members. The second day will feature dynamic plenaries and engaging breakout sessions where participants will learn, interact, and exchange ideas. This workshop is a not-to-be missed opportunity for all those involved in animal-based science.

    Our workshop will once again be held in conjunction with the Canadian Association for Laboratory Animal Science (CALAS) Annual Symposium.
