This portal is your entry into the biosafety learning and knowledge services offered by the Centre for Biosecurity of the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Office of Biohazard Containment and Safety of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Here you will find tools for you to promote safer biosafety practices in your facility.
Whether you are a biosafety professional, a containment facility user or manager, an engineer, architect or otherwise involved in designing or managing containment facilities, or even if you simply have an interest in biosafety, there are materials here for you. The materials on this portal are provided to be used as part of a biosafety training program specific to your facility. Working together we can promote the importance of biosafety and its application in Canadian facilities.
The portal currently contains a variety of courses and resources, including:
Principles of Laboratory Biosafety e-Learning Course This modular course has been developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to help strengthen biosafety and biosecurity principles.
