Application to Use Animals in Research or Teaching
Regardless of funding, if you are a SFU Principal Investigator (PI) using vertebrates, certain invertebrates (e.g. Cephalopods), and fish, for any research purpose (including observation of animals), a valid animal care protocol is required (even if the work is being done at another institution).
Quick Start Guide
Apply for any required permits, such as Level 2 Biohazard, and submit the Animal Use Protocol Form for approval by the University Animal Care Committee.
Ensure all persons named on the application have taken or are registered to complete the online Animal User Training course (CCAC Modules).
After the protocol has been approved, contact the Animal Care Services Manager, to discuss your study and space allocation needs, to arrange for facility orientation and training, and to arrange for facility access and ordering.
Contact Animal Care Services to order materials and supplies, and arrange for technical services. All animal orders, including aquatic species, must be done through the ACS Manager. The deadline for orders is 12:00 noon Thursday. Most shipments will be recieved the following week. Our policy is to allow an acclimatization period of 7 days, post-arrival, before starting your study. Please keep this in mind when placing your order.
