CAlgary Fire Department

A current research project that we have underway is in collaboration with the Calgary Fire Department where we provide bracelets to the firefighters and then analyze the bracelets in our laboratories. With increased risks of cancer among Canadian firefighters, the fire department wants to identify what types of toxic compounds they are exposed to in their line of work, including under their personal protective equipment. AGAT Laboratories is using a new testing media that the firefighters wear and we analyze in our Montreal Ultra-trace and forensics laboratory to identify present compounds. This study is in the process of moving onto larger test groups and is hoped to collaborate with other fire departments across Canada.

Sunnybrook & the university of toronto

In Ontario, we are working with the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and University of Toronto to create a research chair at the University dedicated to Vascular disease research with a focus of preventing limb loss due to diabetes. Dr. Papia has a mobile clinic that he brings out to charity golf tournaments and other events where he can use a Doppler ultrasound to examine the blood flow in major arteries and veins to quickly identify if there are any blockages. This simple and quick test can save limbs and lives.

doodle dogs

In November 2020, the AGAT Foundation was able to supply Doodle Dogs with the funds to purchase dog food for families in need. From Doodle dogs website, “We discovered that the best way to build a beautifully unique pet store is to carry the beautiful handmade gear made right here in Calgary and across Canada (usually found at markets and on Etsy, etc). Here we are five years later with 20+ local brands – all handmade in Calgary and across Canada, most of which can only be bought direct from them on in our shops and our online boutique.”
