The article presents information on the formation of Canadian Academies of Science (CAS). Three founding organizations including the Canadian Academy of Engineering, the Canadian Institute of Academic Medicine and the Royal Society of Canada worked together to develop the concept of the CAS. The proposed mission of the Canadian Academies of Science is two-fold; to provide a source of credible independent expert assessments on the sciences underlying pressing issues and matters of public interest and to provide a voice for Canada on behalf of the sciences both nationally and internationally.
