About Us

The Society of Toxicology of Canada, formerly the Canadian Association for Research in Toxicology, was founded in 1964. More info on the origins of the STC here. Currently, our membership, broadly representing industry, government and academic institutions across Canada, is comprised of individuals whose interests range from fundamental and basic to clinical and applied toxicology, and whose academic qualifications include M.Sc., Ph.D., D.V.M. and M.D. degrees.

The Society’s scientific activities, presented in symposium fashion, have included critical discussion of numerous topics of contemporary interest.

Our involvement as a founding member of the International Union of Toxicology extends our expression to the international field.
