Biosafety Program

Any work with biohazardous agents that falls under the Public Health Agency of Canada's Human Pathogens and Toxin Act or Canadian Food Inspection Agency's requirements for aquatic or terrestrial animals must conform to the university's Biosafety program. The university's Biosafety Committee establishes and maintains the program to ensure all activities involving biological agents are conducted in a safe manner and in compliance with the Canadian Biosafety Standards and Guidelines (previously the Laboratory Biosafety Guidelines, 3rd edition, 2004, Public Health Agency of Canada). The program, administered by the Biosafety Officer, is designed to protect workers and the public from potential exposure to infectious materials and to prevent the release of these materials into the environment.
