Western takes ethical non-compiance very seriously. Not only does ethical non-compliance endanger the welfare of animals affected by the non-compliance, but it can also affect the work of grad students, other researchers and, in some severe cases, the work of the entire Western community.

Every member of the Western community is responsible for alerting the proper authorities about breaches in ethical and legal behaviour. Please email to notify the ACC of ethical non-compliance in the animal research community at Western and its affiliates. In the case of non-compliance occuring due to the work of ACVS or the ACC, please contact the office of the VP Research directly via

As with any disclosures of a sensitive nature, the ACC fully complies with Western's Safe Disclosure Policy (PDF).
