Canadian Biotechnology Advisory Committee Company Profile

15:24 EDT 23rd June 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Government of Canada adopted its first National Biotechnology Strategy in 1983. It refocused its policies in 1993, with a revised Federal Regulatory Framework for Biotechnology. Again in 1998, in order to address a much broader range of emerging issues, the Government developed the Canadian Biotechnology Strategy (CBS). The strategy recognizes that biotechnology is a powerful "enabling technology" with profound ramifications for the society, the economy and the public. The CBS policy framework recognizes that biotechnology offers tremendous opportunity, but also triggers ethical and regulatory issues (e.g. genetically modified foods, patenting of higher life forms) that raise significant public concern. Throughout the consultation process leading up to the development of the CBS, there was universal support both inside and outside of government for the development of a new body to advise the Government and Canadians. The Canadian Biotechnology Advisory Committee (CBAC) was established in September 1999 by the Government of Canada as part of its Canadian Biotechnology Strategy. In creating this body of external experts and lay persons, the Government responded to the need for ongoing expert advice on the full range of issues associated with iotechnology and its applications in our society. Engaging the people of Canada in the dialogue and providing them with accurate information that would contribute to our understanding of this emerging technology and its implications for Canada, were recognized as important.
