Assessments are conducted by multidisciplinary panels of experts from across Canada and abroad. Experts serve free of charge and many are Fellows of the CCA's Member Academies. [more...]

The CCA's completed assessments are published and made available to the public free of charge in both English and French. CCA reports can also be found on Scribd and Google Books.
