Guiding principles

The CRCHUM considers the use of animals in research to be essential for the development of innovations in medicine and biomedical research, which will be achieved specifically in the form of new treatments or medical devices to improve human health.

The CRCHUM is committed to conducting its research while maintaining the highest ethical standards and to providing animals with the best possible care, in accordance with the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) guidelines.

The CCAC is the national organization responsible for development, implementation and oversight of the highest standards of animal ethics and care in all animal-based science conducted throughout Canada. The CRCHUM holds and maintains a CCAC Certificate of Good Animal Practice.

Senior administrator

The research centre’s manager, as the senior administrator, has organized pedagogical and scientific merit review committees to ensure that all projects involving animals are peer-reviewed.

Furthermore, for any ethical review of animal use, an institutional animal care committee (IACC) was created in January 1998.
