Canadian Centre for Fur Animal Research
2 Farm Lane
The Fur Unit was initiated in 1984 as a teaching and research unit. The animal housing facilities include a pelter shed and individual outside breeder pens for silver foxes and two traditional two-row sheds for mink. The unit also houses American Marten. An additional building, opened in 1989, includes a feed kitchen, metabolism rooms, a laboratory, and an office. A new, technologically advanced mink facility is being constructed to enhance research and development capability in the Canadian Centre for Fur Animal Research (CCFAR).
