National Centre for the Prosecution of Animal Cruelty (NCPAC)

NCPAC provides resources to Crown prosecutors that support the successful prosecution of animal cruelty cases using the Criminal Code of Canada. The centre designs and delivers training to the prosecution community that reflects current best practices in animal cruelty prosecution in order to improve consistency and outcomes across the country.

NCPAC is a program created in partnership with Crown prosecutors from across the country and allied professionals from SPCAs, humane societies and the veterinary community. NCPAC works hand-in-hand with animal law experts and ensures the most up-to-date and innovative information is available and accessible to the prosecution community. NCPAC gratefully acknowledges contributions of Crown prosecutors from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Quebec.
