The Council of Canadian Academies
The Council of Canadian Academies (the Council) is an independent, not-forprofit corporation that supports science-based, expert assessments to inform public policy development in Canada. Led by a 12-member Board of Governors and advised by a 16-member Scientific Advisory Committee, the Council’s work encompasses a broad definition of “science,” incorporating the natural, social, and health sciences as well as engineering and the humanities. Council assessments are conducted by independent, multidisciplinary panels of experts from across Canada and abroad. Assessments strive to identify: emerging issues; gaps in knowledge; Canadian strengths; and international trends and practices. Upon completion, assessments provide government decision makers, academia, and stakeholders with high-quality information required to develop informed and innovative public policy. All Council assessments undergo a formal report review, and are published and made available to the public free of charge in English and French. Assessments can be referred to the Council by foundations, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, or any level of government. The Council is also supported by its three founding Member Academies: RSC: The Academies of the Arts, Humanities and Sciences of Canada is the
