FIND EVIDENCE-BASED RESOURCES

Evidence-based resources synthesize and/or critically appraise the existing research on a clinical or health-related practice, technology (including drugs and devices), or protocol. 

COUNCIL OF CANADIAN ACADEMIES

The Canadian Council of Academies (CCA) provides "...independent, evidence-based, expert assessments that inform public policy development in Canada."  While they don't use the same systematized protocol for reviewing and synthesizing evidence as do the sources above, the  reports are still useful resources for understanding the 'state-of-the-art' of a given topic.

Recent topics covered in their assessments range from regenerative medicine to health product risk communication to medical assistance in dying.  Reports can also be used to identify key Canadian data and information sources for a given topic.
