Canadian Network of Toxicology Centres

The Canadian Network of Toxicology Centres (CNTC) was formed in 1988 by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by three existing centres: the Centre for Toxicology at the University of Guelph, the Toxicology Research Centre at the University of Saskatchewan, and the Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en toxicologie de l'Université de Montréal et de l'Université du Québec à Montréal. These centres became the "nodes" of the CNTC.

In April 1992, the CNTC was allocated five year startup funding from Canada's Green Plan to implement the National Toxicology Program, as envisaged in the plan. General objectives were set as follows:

  • To address Canada's national and regional needs in the understanding of toxic substances in the most efficient and coordinated manner;
  • To facilitate communication between toxicology centres in the areas of management, research and education;
  • To encourage the establishment of joint, cooperative research and educational projects between network members, federal and provincial government research establishments and industry;
  • To develop and maintain the highest standards of scientific research and education in toxicology;
  • To transfer information and achieve toxicological literacy among all Canadians.

As the CNTC enters its 11th year, we are pleased to announce the continued support of our major government sponsor and supporter, Environment Canada who has approved a contribution agreement for fiscal year 2003-2004.”
