Protecting Canada's Lab Animals: Is It Time To Get Legal?
This meeting is being hosted by the Animal Law Section.

Speaker(s): Dr. Elisabeth Ormandy, Executive Director & Co-Founder, Animals in Science Policy
Time: Thursday, September 26, 2019 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm (Pacific Time)
Location: Owen Bird Law Corporation, 29th Floor, 595 Burrard Street
CPD Hours: 1.00
Please note that this is an estimate of the total hours of CPD that are being offered. Upon the conclusion of the meeting, an assessment will be made as to exactly how many hours will be approved.
In Canada, there is no national legislation regarding the use of animals in research, testing and education, which makes us one of few major countries using animals without some form of legislation.

In this talk, Dr. Elizabeth Ormandy will use case studies to make the case for introducing national legislation. Dr. Ormandy is the Co-Founder and the Executive Director of the Animals in Science Policy Institute, a not-for-profit dedicated to addressing the need for more critical and constructive dialogue about the use of animals in research, teaching, and testing in Canada. She is also an instructor at UBC and sits on the Categories of Welfare Impact sub-committee of the Canadian Council on Animal Care.
