The use of animals for research, teaching or testing at the University of Toronto is subject to ethical and legal requirements under Ontario’s Animals for Research Act, and the federal Canadian Council on Animal Care. The fewest number of animals are used when necessary under conditions that ensure their proper care and welfare.

The UTM Animal Care Facility works with faculty members and graduate students at U of T Mississauga to facilitate research projects in which the use of animals is necessary, and ensure the research is conducted following proper procedures.
