Animal Care Committee

Mission Statement:

The Montreal Neurological Institute (The Neuro) Animal Care Committee (ACC) is set up to ensure that all animals used in research, teaching or testing within its jurisdiction, are used and cared for in accordance with the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC), the University Animal Care Committee (UACC), and The Neuro Animal Care and Use Program guidelines and policies and all other applicable requirements.

The ACC also serves as a resource to faculty, investigators, technicians, students, staff, and administrators and provides guidance for conducting all animal use procedures with the highest scientific, humane, and ethical principles.

The ACC is composed of a Chair, Administrator, Compliance Officer, Veterinarian, Community Representative, Student Representative, Researchers, Animal Facility staff, and Director of the McGill Animal Compliance Office or representative. It meets at least 10 times per year.
