A new chair, as well as two new members have been confirmed for the expert panel reviewing Safety Code 6. The new Chair of the Panel, effective immediately, is Dr. Paul Demers, Professor with the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto and Clinical Professor with the University of British Columbia. Additionally, Dr. Bryan Kolb, FRSC, a neuroscientist from the University of Lethbridge, and Dr. Anne-Marie Nicol, the Principal Investigator of the CAREX Canada Project, from Simon Fraser University, will also join the panel. Drs. Kolb and Nicol will assume the roles vacated by Dr. Brian Christie and Dr. Louise Lemyre, who are unable to continue with the project for personal family reasons and academic commitments. Full biographies of all panellists are available here.
The public consultation will be held in Ottawa on Monday, October 28. Additional details will appear in this space shortly. The RSC will directly contact those individuals who have previously been confirmed to speak at the session. Additional invitations will then be extended. Written submissions from members of the public continue to be encouraged. For further details, please consult the RSC protocols for public consultations.
