Three R's Microsite Your link to information on replacement, reduction and refinement alternatives for animal use in science

This unique Canadian resource includes information on Replacement, Reduction and Refinement in research, testing and teaching.

 In addition, the Three Rs Search Guide is a resource designed to facilitate investigators to consider the Three Rs during animal use protocol preparation. As such, we also ask that you consider posting a link to the Three Rs Search Guide from your animal use protocol form webpage.

The Three Rs microsite contains other useful tools such as:

 The Animal Index- a grouping Three Rs resources by category and/or species to assist in finding resources specific to certain types of animals; and

 Care & Techniques– Information about refinements to animal care and animal-based scientific techniques
