The Ethics of Research with Animals
Are you doing research with animals? If so, you must obtain an ÉTS certificate of compliance before beginning your research work.
Who requires a certificate of compliance?
According to the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) (external site), any activity that uses vertebrates or cephalopods for purposes of research, teaching, testing or for display purposes must be evaluated and approved by an Animal Care Committee (ACC).
ÉTS does not currently have an Animal Care Committee. The Research Ethics Committee (CÉR) monitors all projects involving animals.
