On June 5, 2008, Treasury Board Secretariat released the report of the Independent Panel of Experts on Transferring Federal Non-Regulatory Laboratories. The report, entitled Inter-Sectoral Partnerships for Non-Regulatory Federal Laboratories, outlines the results of the Panel's work and describes the methodology used by the Panel to reach its conclusions.

The Panel was created following a Budget 2007 commitment and consisted of:

Dr. Arnold Naimark of Manitoba (Chair),
Dr. Kevin Keough of Alberta,
Dr. Kelvin Ogilvie of Nova Scotia, and
Dr. Clive Willis of Quebec.

The Panel undertook extensive consultations and sought the views of stakeholders on options for managing federal laboratories to increase inter-sectoral integration. The Panel's report provides solid advice on potential arrangements for federal laboratories involving government, academia and the private sector that would lead to a stronger and better integrated science and technology sector, and advance Canadian science.
