Community Liaison Committee

The Community Liaison Committee (CLC) was created by the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) in May 2007 to serve as an independent organization working to ensure full and open communication on safety issues related to the International Vaccine Centre (InterVac), located on the U of S campus.

INTERNATIONAL VACCINE CENTRE (InterVac)

VIDO-InterVac lives its mandate - to provide

"Solutions Through Research."

 

InterVac is one of the largest and most advanced level 3 containment facilities in the world.  It will enhance Canada's capacity to protect animal and human health from existing and emerging infectious diseases by developing new vaccines, improving existing ones and creating new and better methods of administering vaccines.  InterVac was built to the highest specifications for safety and security and exceeds current regulatory standards. It has multiple controls in place to ensure the safety of workers studying live disease-causing organisms and that the public is never exposed to these organisms.
