What's New

March 30, 2010

It is my pleasure to present the new website of the Council of Canadian Academies. The Council is an independent, not-for-profit corporation that supports science-based, expert assessments (studies) to inform public policy development in Canada.   We hope you will enjoy the new website and take the time to tour through its many different pages.  While visiting, you will find evidence-based reports and information that address different and important public policy issues. For example, the Council has undertaken work on topics as varied as business innovation, arctic research, groundwater, and nanotechnology.  You can learn more about the Council and what we do on the About Us page.

Our expert assessments are used by individual Canadians, governments, academics and business leaders. As part of our commitment to provide science advice for the public good, Council reports are free of charge and easily downloadable.  If you would like to order hard copies of any of our reports please contact us directly. I  also encourage you to take a minute to sign up to our mailing list so we can keep you up-to-date on Council activities and assessments. 

Finally, I would like to thank our Member Academies and the numerous expert volunteers who give so generously of their time and work with us in developing high quality and objective reports.  Without the support of these experts we would be unable to achieve our mission. 

We hope you will visit us often.
