CCI Scientific Services
Did you know that the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) provides scientific services free of charge to Canadian institutions caring for public collections? Whether you want to understand the degradation process affecting an object or determine the composition of original materials, ancient or modern, our conservation scientists can help. CCI scientists also provide onsite services for a fixed fee.
CCI aims to serve a broad array of institutions across the country. However, since we are the only place in Canada that offers such specialized services, demand is high. Turnaround time depends on the complexity of the project, the number of samples or objects and the workload of the scientists at the time of the request. Please provide sufficient time for us to answer your questions in a timely manner.
More information on CCI’s scientific services is available on their website.
