The Government of Canada is committed to prioritizing science and evidence-based decision-making. The integrity of this approach is key not only to achieving the desired policy outcomes, but also to maintaining public trust.

This interactive event features Canada’s Chief Science Advisor, Dr. Mona Nemer, who will advocate for and field questions about the role of scientific evidence in the policy development process, and the importance of promoting a government-wide culture of scientific integrity.

Participants will learn about the efforts underway to strengthen evidence-based decision-making and scientific integrity across government, including the federal scientific integrity policies. They will also gain insights into how to communicate scientific evidence to decision-makers, including concepts around uncertainty and the strength of evidence.



  • Dr. Mona Nemer, Chief Science Advisor, Office of the Chief Science Advisor, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada



  • Cara Tannenbaum, Departmental Science Advisor, Health Canada, Professor, Faculty of Medicine, Université de Montréal
