The Canadian Clinical Trials Asset Map (CCTAM) is a unique, robust, searchable web-based database designed to showcase Canada’s clinical research strengths to all stakeholders, including clinical trial sponsors

 and position Canada as an attractive global destination for the conduct of clinical trials. It is the first pan-Canadian map research inventory set to list investigators, clinical research sites, hospitals, institutions, research ethics boards and other clinical research  resources available across the country. The CCTAM offers tremendous benefits to investigators, sites and institutions, and enables clinical trial sponsors to place trials effectively and efficiently. The CCTAM, a free and regularly updated tool, will be launched June 4 at www.cctam.ca.

The CCTAM stems from the Action Plan to help attract more clinical trials to Canada spearheaded by Canada’s Research-based pharmaceutical companies (Rx&D), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and HealthCareCAN. The CCTAM is overseen by the Canadian Clinical Trials Coordinating Centre (CCTCC).

The design, features, benefits of and future plans for the CCTAM will be discussed along with a brief demo.

  • Objective 1: Participants will learn about why CCTAM was developed and why it is important to Canada.
  • Objective 2: Participants will learn about the benefits of the CCTAM.
  • Objective 3: Participants will learn how to be included in the CCTAM and how the CCTAM supports sites, institutions, networks and investigators.
