GATINEAU, QC, May 31, 2018 /CNW/ - Every day, scientists and technologists are hard at work at Environment and Climate Change Canada labs across the country, to ensure Canadians enjoy a safe, clean, and sustainable environment.
On June 13 and 14, 2018—during National Public Service Week—we are opening select research facilities across the country to offer Canadians a first-hand look at our work and an opportunity to meet our outstanding scientists and experts.
Visitors will have the chance to tour facilities housing some of the world's leading research laboratories where our scientists are monitoring air and water quality, studying ecosystem health and the impacts of climate change, and improving our ability to predict extreme weather events.
Participating Environment and Climate Change Canada laboratories are located in Montréal, Burlington, Ottawa, Toronto, and North Vancouver. For more information on these open house events, please visit our website.
"Science affects our lives every day—the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather forecasts we rely on. The Government of Canada is committed to making science more accessible to Canadians. I invite Canadians to take part in open-house events at our world-class labs to get an inside look at the fascinating work being done by Environment and Climate Change Canada scientists."
