Environmental DNA (eDNA) can provide non-destructive, rapid, cost-effective and accurate biodiversity information. This genetic material shed from organisms into their environment can help Canadian communities, Indigenous peoples, industries and regulators manage natural resources with timely and relevant information regarding risk and impacts of human activities.

The iTrackDNA project is poised to help Canadians reach high environmental quality standards and position Canada as an international leader on eDNA standards adoption, policy development and testing.
