Council of Canadian Academies

The Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) is an independent, not-for-profit organization that began operation in 2005 

The CCA supports independent, authoritative, and evidence-based expert assessments that inform public policy development in Canada.

Assessments are conducted by multidisciplinary panels of experts from across Canada and abroad. Experts serve free of charge and many are Fellows of the CCA's Member Academies. [more...]

The CCA's completed assessments are published and made available to the public free of charge in both English and French. CCA reports can also be found on Scribd and Google Books.
